JK: Indian troops respond to Pak firing in Naushera

Updated: Oct 16, 2016 08:59 IST

Srinagar [India], Oct. 16 (ANI): Pakistan opened unprovoked fire yet again in Naushera sector on Jammu and Kashmir today, to which the Indian troops gave a befitting reply.

A heavy gunbattle is underway and intermittent firing has been consistent since morning from Pakistan's side.

No casualties have been reported from the Indian side.

This comes after a spree of ceasefire violations last week by Pakistan after the surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army on 29 September to destroy terror launchpads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Ever since, Pakistan has stepped up cross-border firing and has violated the Line of Control ceasefire at least 20 times. (ANI)
