Srinagar, Sep 1 (ANI): A soldier was killed in firing from across the border at a forward post along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch District in the wee hours on Tuesday, Army officials said.

According to reports, the soldier has been identified as Lance Naik Dag Bahadur Gurung.

A senior Army official said that it was an unprovoked firing, and the Indian Army didn't retaliate.

It is believed to be the fourth case of ceasefire violation by Pakistan in this sector this year.

Defence Minister A.K. Antony had last year stated that Pakistan had violated the ceasefire over 30 times since it was agreed between India and Pakistan in November 2003. (ANI)
