Violating the ceasefire again, Pakistani troops resorted to firing on Indian forward posts along the Line of Control in Poonch district, leaving a jawan injured.

"There was firing from heavy weapons and attacks on forward posts along the LoC in Krishnagati sector of Poonch district at approximately 10 pm on Wednesday night," a senior army officer said on Thursday.

The cross-border firing continued for a brief period, he said, adding that an army jawan was injured in the firing and hospitalised. Army troops guarding the LoC retaliated, he said.

The firing was aimed at NPP and Shahpur foward posts along the LoC for pushing in militants into Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

This is the second ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops this year. Earlier, on January 2, Pakistan troops had violated the ceasefire by firing on Indian posts in Poonch sector.
