The Pakistani Army targeted Indian positions on the LoC in the Nowshera sector, Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta told IANS here.

“Using small arms, automatics and mortars, they started unprovoked shelling and firing at 10.30 am. It is still going on. Indian troops are retaliating strongly and effectively,” Mehta said.
