Srinagar, Aug 16 (UNI) Hours after Pakistani and Indian Prime Ministers greeted each other on their respective 62nd Independence Day, Pakistani troops violated the five-year-old ceasefire yet again by attacking Indian positions in Keran sector in Jammu and Kashmir.
A police spokesman said today that during the preceeding night, Pakistani troops fired mortar shells on forward posts near the Line of Control (LoC) in Keran sector.
