Pakistani forces are firing using small arms, automatics and mortars. The unprovoked firing began at 1620 hours, reported news agency ANI.

It may be recalled that four Army personnel including a Captain were martyred on Sunday in ceasefire violation by Pakistan. A young Army Captain was among the four Army personnel killed after Pakistani troops initiated unprovoked firing and shelling in Rajouri district's Bhimber Gali sector on Sunday.

In the past 35 days there have been 240 incidents along the Line of Control and International Border. Pakistan has been frequently violating the ceasefire and the Army says that the current phase was an escalatory ladder.

The Army has vowed to give a befitting reply to Pakistan's actions. The Vice-Chief of the Army Staff Lieutenant-General Sarath Chandra said that the Army would continue to give a befitting reply. Our action will speak for itself, he also said. Intelligence reports in the possession of OneIndia clearly indicate that Pakistan would continue to up the ante. There is a desperate attempt to aid infiltrations and ceasefire violations are being indulged in to provide cover fire to the terrorists.
