Pakistan violates ceasefire again, jawan injured

Violating the ceasefire again, Pakistani troops resorted to small arms firing on Indian forward posts along the Line of Control in Poonch district, leaving a jawan injured.

“There was firing from heavy weapons and RPG attacks on forward posts along the LoC in Krishnagati sector of Poonch district around 2200 hours last night,” a senior Army officer told PTI on Thursday.

The cross-border firing continued for a brief period, he said, adding an Army jawan was injured in the firing and hospitalised.

Army troops guarding the LoC retaliated, he said.

The firing was aimed at NPP and Shahpur foward posts along the LoC for pushing in militants into Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

This is the second ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops this year.

Earlier on January 2, Pakistan troops had violated the ceasefire by firing on Indian posts in Poonch sector.
