India, Pakistan armies exchange fire along LoC in Rajouri


The armies of India and Pakistan on Tuesday exchanged heavy firing on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.

“The Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation in Rajouri’s Sunderbani sector and Jammu’s Akhnoor sector on Monday night,” news gatherer IANS quoted Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Devender Anand as saying.

Firing exchanges in the Sunderbani sector started at 10.45 p.m., but stopped soon, Anand told media.

“In Akhnoor, the Pakistan Army resorted to mortar shelling and firing of small arms which continued till Tuesday morning. Our troops retaliated effectively,” the spokesman added.

However, there were no immediate reports of any causality from either side, the report mentioned.
