Rajouri [India], Oct. 4 (ANI): In yet another ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops resorted to heavy shelling and firing along LoC in Naushera sector in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir this morning.

Pakistani forces started unprovoked firing and shelling in civilian areas and on forward Indian posts around 5 a.m. Troops guarding the border line retaliated effectively.

The heavy exchange of fire is still going on. There is no report of any casualty or injury to the Indian side.

Indian troops targeted Pakistani posts, from where the shelling was initiating, effectively to silent the guns. Intermittent heavy exchanges were heard throughout the night.

The escalated tension along the LoC and International Border has been forcing the border people to shift to safer places. (ANI)
