Jammu, June 17

A soldier was injured on Monday as Pakistan violated ceasefire on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, defence sources said.

The Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked shelling and firing at Indian positions in the Krishna Ghati (KG) sector.

The injured soldier was shifted to hospital.

“Indian positions are retaliating effectively,” sources said. Firing exchanges were under way between the two sides.

Two girls and a porter working for the Army were also injured in Sunday’s shelling and firing by Pakistan on the LoC in the Shahpur sector. IANS
