Home minister Rajnath Singh will hold an internal security meeting in New Delhi today to take a stock of increasing ceasefire violations and infiltration attempts from across the Line of Control (LoC).

Pakistani troops have so far violated the ceasefire agreement more than 30 times since the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) to destroy terror launching pads.

Earlier today, Pakistani troops resorted to ceasefire violation in Bhimer Gali(BG) sector of Rajouri and in Hiranagar sector of Kathua district.

“The troops violated bilateral ceasefire in Bhimber Ghali (BG) sector of the LoC. They used mortars to target our positions,” Defence spokesman, lieutenant colonel, Manish Mehta, said.

The Indian troops retaliated to the ceasefire violations. There has been no report of any casualty or damage, he added.

Pakistan has so far denied that the Indian Army crossed into PoK and carried out an operation targeting terror launch pads.
