"There was firing by troops from across from 0900 hours along LoC in Poonch sector today," an officer said.

The Indian troops retaliated and there was a brief exchange of firing, he said, adding there was no causality. The firing took place in Shahpur sector of Poonch.

On December 30, a civilian was killed as Pakistan army indulged in heavy cross-border firing targeting Indian positions and civilian areas along the Line of Control (LOC) in the Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir, prompting the Indian side to give a befitting reply.

On December 16, Pakistan army had targeted Indian positions along the LoC in the Balakote sector of the same district. The 2003 India-Pakistan ceasefire agreement has virtually become redundant with a whopping over 300 incidents of firing and shelling along LoC and IB in J&K by Pakistani troops that resulted in death of 27 people, including 14 security personnel, since the surgical strike on terrorist launch pads in PoK on September 28-29.
