According to ANI, this was in retaliation for the ceasefire violation by Pakistan along the LoC on Saturday. Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked and indiscriminate shelling and firing in the Keri sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

Major Prafulla Ambadas, and three jawans: Lance Naik Gurmail Singh, Lance Naik Kuldeep Singh and Sepoy Pargat Singh were martyred in ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Keri (120 Infantry Brigade) Batallion Area.

DawnNews quoting Pakistan's Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) reported that the shelling occurred at Rukh Chakri sector in Rawlakot and received a strong response from Pakistani forces.

The ISPR was quoted as saying, India had initiated the "unprovoked ceasefire violation" that led to an exchange of fire between the two countries' border forces.
