Srinagar: Pakistani troops on Friday violated ceasefire along the Line of Control in Naugam sector for the third consecutive day and in Keran sector but there were no casualties in the unprovoked firing from across the LoC.
An army official said the Indian Army is retaliating to the Pakistani aggression in equal measure.
"Pakistani troops violated ceasefire again in Naugam sector on Friday by unprovoked firing towards our posts," he said. The official said the Pakistani troops also violated ceasefire in Keran sector of Kupwara.
This is the third ceasefire violation in Naugam sector within 24 hours.
