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

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

Pakistani troops have so far violated ceasefire agreement more than 30 times since the Indian army carried out surgical strikes in PoK to destroy terror launching pads.
