New Delhi: Pakistan's Director-General of Military Operations on Friday  called up his Indian counterpart to discuss the ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir earlier in the day.


The Pakistani DGMO called up the Indian DGMO and alleged that Indian troops violated the ceasefire but the Indian side told them that the violation was done by the Pakistani troops, Indian Army officials said here.

Official Pakistani sources here said that the Pakistani DGMO complained that the Indian side had violated the ceasefire and sought a sector commander-level meeting to resolve the issue and look at the ground situation.

However, the Indian Army sources denied that any such meeting was proposed by the Pakistani side.

Official Pakistani sources said their side reiterated its commitment for maintaining the ceasefire and adhere to the pacts signed between the DGMOs of the two sides in December last year.

A senior Army officer told PTI that Pakistani troops resorted to small arms firing and mortars firing on Indian posts along LoC in Doda battalion area in Poonch district from 0935 hours.

Army troops guarding the borderline fired back resulting in intermittent exchanges of fire.
