Indian and Pakistani troops traded heavy fire on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district on Wednesday, police said.

The firing exchanges started in Chakan Da Bagh area.

"Mortar shelling and small arms firing continued between the two sides," a police officer said. 

As two shells fired from Pakistan landed near the Chakan Da Bagh trade facilitation centre, its staff and others present there hurriedly took shelter in underground bunkers.

"No damage or casualty was caused due to the Pakistani shelling," the officer said.

The Pakistani ceasefire violation occurred on a day the cross-LoC trade between the Indian and Pakistan administered parts of Jammu and Kashmir took place between Chakan Da Bagh and Rawalakot.
