Pakistan again violates ceasefire along LoC

Pakistani troops again violated ceasefire along the Line of Control today in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, prompting strong and effective retaliation by the Indian Army, a defence spokesman said.
The shelling from across the border started in Nowshera sector around 12.30 p.m., ending over 12-hour-long lull in the border skirmishes.
A young woman and her two children were killed and several others, including two Army personnel, were injured in heavy shelling along the LoC in lower Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district on Friday night, raising the death toll in the exchange of firing on the Indian side to four.
