New Delhi: Pakistan on Tuesday violated the ceasefire again after they fired shots towards their Indian counterpart at Nowshera sector of Rajouri district, Jammu and Kashmir. This comes as the 110th ceasefire violation in merely two months.   

One army jawan was martyred and another injured in the firing by Pak Rangers, police said.

Indian forces at Nowshera, a region normally susceptible to infiltration bids and attacks, are effectively retaliating at the Pakistani rangers.

As per defence spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta, “The Pakistan Army violated ceasefire in Naushera sector at 8.30 a.m.”

82mm mortars and automatics were used to target Indian positions in Laam area.” 

Yesterday, an army soldier was injured in an encounter between the militants and troops of 62 Rashtriya Rifles and state police in Wangam village of Shopian district.

On Sunday, two Indian soldiers were killed in Pakistani shelling when the Army foiled two attempts by terrorists to sneak into Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan.
