Ceasefire violation at loC in J&K

Jammu, May 22 - In yet another incident of ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops fired from small and medium arms across the line of control (loC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district Tuesday, prompting Indian forces to retaliate, army officials said. There was no loss of life or property in the firing.

An army spokesman told IANS that the Pakistani troops opened fire from across the loC in Saujian sector of Rajouri Tuesday morning. The Indian side returned the fire that went on for over an hour.

He said the three-tier barbed wire fencing erected by India to prevent infiltration from Pakistan gets damaged because of snow in winter. 'As the snow melts, we carry out the repair work of the fence. This firing by Pakistani troops was just to disturb the repair work.'

There was no loss of life or damage to property as the firing 'was not targeted at individuals, it was just to disrupt the repair work', the spokesman said.

There have been more than 250 ceasefire violations by Pakistan since 2006 in which about a dozen security personnel were killed on the Indian side and over 59 got injured.

Majority of these violations were in Poonch and Rajouri districts of Jammu region besides Kupwara and Baramulla in the Kashmir valley, official sources said.

India and Pakistan agreed to a ceasefire on the frontiers in November 2003.
