In an unwelcomed move on the day of New Year, the Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked firing on the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Police said the Pakistanis resorted to unprovoked shelling and firing on Indian positions at three places.

In retaliation, the Indian Army gave them a befitting reply.

"The Indian Army struck back effectively using same calibre weapons," a police official said.

The shelling and firing started around 9.30 in the morning.
