A heavy exchange of fire took place on Saturday between Indian and Pakistani troops on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, a defence official said.

“At around 1.30 pm, the Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation by shelling mortars and firing of small arms along the LoC in the Mankote sector,” Defence Ministry spokesman Lt Col Devender Anand said.

“Our positions effectively retaliated. The firing is continuing,” he added. IANS
