Army opens speculative fire along LoC

Srinagar: Indian troops today opened “speculative fire” along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district.

Earlier, an Army officer had said that there was a ceasefire violation in the area and that details are being sought.

“There was no ceasefire violation along the LoC in Poonch. It was speculative fire”, an army officer of northern command said.

Speculative fire is normally used to check movement of suspicious persons along the border.
