Indian troops again come under Pak shelling

August 21, 2008 11:19 IST

In yet another ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops on Thursday targeted Nowshera sector in Jammu and Kashmir [Images] and fired six mortar shells.

Pakistani forces resorted to intermittent firing of mortar shells in Jhangarh area of Nowshera sector in Rajouri district for 45 minutes from 0640 hours, defence spokesman Lt Col S D Goswami told PTI in Jammu.

Indian troops exercised restraint and did not retaliate, he said, adding there was no loss of life or damage to property in the shelling.

"The troops are alert all along the Line of Control [Images] to foil any evil design of the enemy," the spokesman added.
