Jammu: Pakistani troops again violated the ceasefire today by resorting to mortar shelling and firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district.

There was firing from across the border along LoC in Saujian sector of Poonch district this morning, Senior Superintendent of Police, Poonch, Shamsher Hussain said.

Pakistani troops also targeted forward areas in Kirni and Shahpur belts, he said, adding there was no injury to anyone in the cross-border firing.

A Defence Spokesman said the troops retaliated to the Pakistani firing.

"There was no loss of life", he said.

Divisional Commissioner, Jammu Zone, Shant Manu said today, "There has been no firing by Pakistan along the IB in the past few days. It is calm."

He, however, said that firing by Pakistan is going on along the LoC in Saujian belt of Poonch.

The international border and LoC in Jammu region have witnessed heavy firing and mortar shelling by Pakistani troops since October one which has left eight persons dead and over 94 injured, including 13 security men.

Besides nearly 30,000 people have fled from their border homes leaving 113 hamlets deserted along the international border.
