As Pakistan continues to violate the ceasefire agreement along the Line of Control (LoC), firing into Jammu-Kashmir's Nowshera sector, Republic TV on Sunday, has accessed exclusive visuals of the incessant shelling where Pakistan has targetted India's residential area by firing twice in the past three hours itself.
The video shows heavy shelling along the mountain tops in Jammu-Kashmir's Nowshera sector. The smoke rising due to sheeling is seen clearly in the video.
Earlier in the day, Pakistani troops violated ceasefire by targeting forward posts and villages along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district for the second successive day, a defence spokesman said to PTI.
The mortar shelling and small arms firing from across the border in Kalal area of Nowshera sector started at around 6.45 pm, prompting strong and effective retaliation by the Indian army, the spokesman said. He said there was no immediate report of any casualty and the cross-border shelling was going on when last reports were received.
Previously on Saturday, despite repeated ceasefire violations by Pakistan across the LoC, the Indian Army in a befitting retaliation destroyed a Pakistani post. In an image accessed by Republic TV, a destroyed Pakistani post in the Nowshera sector of Rajouri district could be seen.
Lance Naik Sandeep Thapa (35), a resident of Dehradun, was killed when Pakistani troops violated ceasefire on Saturday. The Pakistan army also suffered heavy damage to their posts and casualties in the retaliatory action.
The Pakistan army on Wednesday targeted dozens of forward posts and villages with artillery guns along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri and Poonch districts, officials said.
The intense shelling and firing from across the border continued throughout the night in Sunderbani sector of Rajouri district, while it started in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch in the early hours of Wednesday, they said.
The latest skirmish comes days after Pakistan claimed that its four soldiers were killed in firing by Indian troops on their posts along the LoC on August 15, which was denied by the Indian Army.
