Srinagar: Pakistan troops on Monday violated ceasefire and resorted to indiscriminate shelling and firing at forward posts in Tangdhar sector in frontier north Kashmir district of Kupwara.
Official sources said that Pakistan troops, violating 2003 ceasefire, resorted to unprovoked shelling and firing, targeting forward posts and villages on this side of the LoC in Teethwal area in Tanghdar sector.
They said appropriate response was given by Indian soldiers in the area. However, the damage suffered by Pakistan troops was not immediately known.
Sources said that Pakistani troops are resorting to firing to help militants to sneak into this side of the border. However, they said troops are on high alert to foil any infiltration bid from PoK, where hundreds of trained militants are waiting in launch pads to sneak into this side. (UNI)
