Pak fires unprovoked on LoC, Indian Army retaliates


Pakistan yet again violated the truce agreement by firing unprovoked on Friday on the second consecutive day on the Line of Control in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.
"Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars this morning from 0745 hrs in KG sector along the Line of Control (LC)," defence spokesman here said.

He said that Indian Army is retaliating strongly and effectively.
"Firing is still on while no injury has been reported so far," he said.

Yesterday, a jawan and a porter attained martyrdom while six others were injured in cross-border firing in KG sector of Poonch.

Meanwhile, curfew-like restrictions were imposed in the downtown and Shehar-e-Khas (SeK) besides parts of the civil lines in Srinagar on Friday to prevent any violence following call for holding protests by separatists against braid chopping incidents in the Kashmir valley.

However, life elsewhere in the valley, including Srinagar uptown, was normal with people busy in their normal work.

The main gates of historic Jamia Masjid, stronghold of moderate Hurriyat Conference (HC) chairman Mirwaiz Moulvi Omar Farooq, were closed again this morning and large number of security forces have been deployed to prevent people from entering the worship place. No Friday prayers could be offered last week due to restrictions.
