A 10-year-old girl was among two persons injured in heavy shelling and firing by Pakistani troops in border areas of Poonch district today. 

The Pakistan army resorted to ceasefire violation in Bandi Chechian, Kirni and Qasba areas of Poonch sector and in Mendhar sector. Beginning with firing by small weapons, the enemy soldiers took to shelling of mortars at Indian Army’s forward locations and in civilian areas. 

The police said mortars partially damaged a house in lower Shahpur panchayat, leaving the girl, Razia, injured. Officials said the Indian Army had been “effectively retaliating”. — TNS
