Heavy firing by Pakistan in Poonch
Poonch, Oct 5: Another major incident of ceasefire violation by Pakistan was reported in the Mendhar and Sawjian Sector of Poonch district early on Sunday morning, Oct 5.

Two people were injured in the Swajian sector on Friday, Oct 3, during another ceasefire violation.

The Indian Army has been responding continuously to the ceasefire violations by Pakistani Rangers, said Lieutenant General Subrata Saha.

"You would have noticed, whenever there have been such instances of ceasefire violations, they have been responded to appropriately, both in terms of the response on the ground along the Line of Control, as also putting them across as per our ceasefire agreement or shall we say ceasefire understanding norms; we have been sending the hotline messages. All that action is in progress as much as it is on the ground outside the various headquarters," he added.

Unprovoked firing and ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops at Indian positions along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu & Kashmir left one dead and injured four civilians on Friday.

Pakistan had earlier violated ceasefire at the shared border on the intervening night of September 30 and October 1.

The fresh violations came after a gap of more than one month along India-Pakistan border in Jammu & Kashmir.
