Srinagar, Mar 26 (InsideKashmir) Pakistan troops on Thursday violated ceasefire and resorted to indiscriminate shelling and firing at forward posts in border town of Uri in frontier north Kashmir district of Baramulla.
Official sources told UNI that Pakistan troops resorted to unprovoked shelling and firing, targeting forward posts and civilian areas at Hajipeer area in Uri sector.
Appropriate response was given by Indian soldiers in both the areas. However, the damage suffered by Pakistan troops was not immediately known.
The sources said that Pakistan troops are violating ceasefire, reached between India and Pakistan in 2003, to facilitate militants to infiltrate into Kashmir valley.
”A large number of militants are waiting at launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) to sneak into this side,” they said.
”However, Indian troops remained on high alert along the Line of Control (LoC) to foil any militant attempt to infiltrate into this side,” they added.
