Jammu, November 6

On a day when Indian and Pakistani soldiers exchanged sweets on the LoC in Poonch district, a soldier was injured in a sniper fire in Rajouri along the de facto border, defence sources said.

The soldier has been shifted to the Army hospital in Udhampur. “It was a sniper fire from across the Line of Control in Nowshera sector,” said a defence source.

In Poonch, troops on Tuesday exchanged sweets at two crossing points on the LoC in Mendhar and Poonch sectors. Amid ongoing tension along LoC, the interaction between the two sides have lately remained confined to flag meetings. — IANS
