Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Oct. 16 (ANI): Defence Expert Brigadier (Retired) Anil Gupta on Sunday said the recent ceasefire violation in Nowshera sector of Jammu and Kashmir shows the 'cowardness' of Pakistan Army.

"The repeated ceasefire violations by the Pakistan Army is an act of 'cowardness' and is 'unethical'," he told ANI.

Brigadier (Retired) Gupta connected today's ceasefire violation in Nowshera with the ongoing BRICS Summit in Goa.

"This ceasefire violation has been done by the Pakistan Army to remain in lime light and also to keep the issue of Kashmir alive," he said.

Appreciating the Indian Army for giving a befitting reply to Pakistan, Brigadier (Retired) Gupta said that it would give a strong message to the neighbouring county.

Earlier today, Pakistan opened unprovoked fire yet again in Naushera sector of Jammu and Kashmir to which the Indian troops gave a befitting reply.

A heavy gun-battle is presently underway and intermittent firing has been consistent since this morning from Pakistan's side.

No casualties have been reported from the Indian side so far.

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