Earlier on Monday, a BSF inspector and a five-year-old girl were killed and 20 persons were injured as Pakistani troops persisted with heavy shelling of forward areas along the Line of Control in Poonch district, prompting Indian Army to give them a "befitting reply", said officials.

Six village houses too bore the brunt of shelling and suffered severe damages, they added.

Amid the ongoing shelling by Pakistan, the people have been advised to stay indoors, the officials said, adding schools too in the shelling-hit areas have been closed down.

A total of nine persons, including four soldiers have been killed and over 40 others injured in Rajouri and Poonch districts since India's air strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror camp in Pakistan's Balakot on February 26 in response to the February 14 Pulwama terror strike which had left 40 CRPF personnel dead.
