A video shared by ANI shows in retaliation to those unprovoked ceasefire violations, the Indian Army on Saturday destroyed a Pakistan Army post opposite the Akhnoor sector on the Line of Control (LoC) where the video evidence shows the Pakistani flag flying upside down as a signal of emergency or extreme distress.

Earlier in the day, an Army personnel was killed in firing by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district, officials said. They said the cross-border firing started in Shahpur and Kerni areas of Poonch around 5.30 p.m. on March 23 and it continued intermittently through the night.

Earlier on Feb 27, the Indian Army destroyed five Pakistani posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir in a befitting retaliation to firing from across the border, resulting in a "number of casualties" to Pak troops, a defence official said.

"The Indian Army retaliated for effect and our focused fire resulted in severe destruction to five posts and number of casualties to Pak army (along LoC in Rajouri and Poonch districts)," the defence PRO said. From 6:30 pm onwards, the Pakistani army initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by shelling with heavy calibre weaponry along the LoC out of frustration, he said.

The Pak troops were also seen firing mortars and missiles from civilian houses, using villagers as human shields.
