Jammu:  An Army jawan was killed Tuesday night when Pakistani troops opened fire at Indian forward posts in Balakote sub-sector along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district in what is stated to be the second ceasefire violation of the day and the eighth in less than a week.

The jawan, who died after being hit by a mortar shell at a Forward Defence Location, was identified as Lance Naik M S Khan of 15 Bihar regiment, the spokesman said.
