Ahead of the ninth anniversary of mutually brokered Indo-Pak ceasefire agreement, Pakistan troops opened heavy fire on 10 Indian posts for over four hours in Krishna Ghati (KG) sector along the LoC in Poonch district late last night.

The truce deal between the two countries had come into force on November 26, 2003. The Army has described it as a major truce violation this year.

“Around 7.40 pm last night, Pakistan army opened heavy machine gun and medium machine gun fire, firing over 6,000 rounds on 10 Indian posts in KG sector,” said officiating Defence PRO SN Acharaya. He said the firing lasted till 11.45 pm.

The official said it was heaviest fire this year along the LoC and described it as a clear case of ceasefire violation.

The Army also gave calibrated response to the Pakistan army troops before guns fell silent on both sides, he said.

No casualty or injury was reported on the Indian side, he added.

The two sides did not hold any flag meeting today, reports said. The Army has alerted its headquarters in New Delhi.

During the skirmish, a forest fire broke out on the Indian side and was extinguished by the Army with the help of locals this morning.

A strict vigil is being maintained along the LoC.

An Intelligence source said Pakistan troops tried to push a group of 12 armed militants into the Indian territory in KG sector last night.

“But the group was detected by the soldiers, who challenged it, resulting in a gunfight. Pakistan troops then opened heavy fire from Daku, Battal, Chuha and Roza posts in Pak-occupied Kashmir on 10 Indian posts, particularly Kranti, Kirpan and Ghora,” the source added.

Pakistan troops also provided cover fire to the militants but following effective retaliation by Indian troops, the militants, who had crossed the LoC but were behind the barbed fence, escaped back to PoK, he said. This was 13th ceasefire violation in KG sector this year.

Maj Gen KH Singh, GOC, Ace of Spades Division, during his recent tour to Poonch district had expressed apprehensions of more truce violations from across the LoC to push ultras before snowfall plugs the mountain passes.
