Pakistan again violates ceasefire on LoC in Rajouri district

Jammu, Nov 21 Pakistan again violated ceasefire on the line of control (LoC) on Saturday evening in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district where an army soldier was killed in the morning in Pakistan firing.

Defence Ministry spokesman Colonel Devender Anand said at about 6 p.m. on Saturday Pakistan again initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by firing with small arms and shelling with mortars along the LoC in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district.

An army Havaldar, identified as Patil Sangram Shivaji was killed in Pakistan firing in the same sector earlier in the morning.

The spokesman said Indian army retaliated befittingly.

Indian army has also inflicted casualties of Pakistani troops in retaliatory action, but senior army officers said that no civilian facilities were targeted during Indian retaliatory action on Pakistan side of the LoC.
