Jammu, Oct 3: At least six people were injured after Pakistan opened fire on Indian positions on the line of control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district, government sources said on Friday.

"Six civilians sustained injuries after the Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked firing at Indian positions on the LoC in Poonch district yesterday (Thursday)," a senior administration official told IANS in Jammu.

The Pakistan Army used mortar shells to target Indian positions. Six houses were also damaged in the firing, state government sources said.

Of the six injured, two with serious splinter injuries were referred for specialised treatment in the Poonch district hospital.
