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)
