Srinagar: Heavy exchange of fire between the armies of India and Pakistan rattled the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday.

Ary spokesperson said that the Pakistani army resorted to “unprovoked ceasefire violation” in Rajouri’s Sunderbani sector and Jammu’s Akhnoor sector on Monday night. The Indian army also retaliated to the fire.

Firing exchanges in the Sunderbani sector started at 10.45 pm, but stopped soon, he said.

“In Akhnoor, the Pakistan Army resorted to mortar shelling and firing of small arms which continued till Tuesday morning. Our troops retaliated effectively,” the spokesman added.
