PRO Defence Lt. Col Manish Mehta informed, “Pakistani troops opened unprovoked firing from small arms and automatic weapons at our forward posts in Bhimbher Gali sub-sector in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir yesterday around 10:30 pm.
The Indian Army countered taking positions with equal calibre weapons. It resulted in intermittent exchange of fire, he added. Reported no loss of life or damage to the property.
The ceasefire violation comes hours after handovering captured BSF constable Satyasheel Yadav to BSF officials by commanders of the Pakistan Rangers yesterday.
