Jammu: The Indian and Pakistani armed forces exchanged heavy shelling and firing all night through along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu district on Monday.
“Heavy shelling and firing exchanges continued throughout the night between Indian and Pakistani troops in Kanachak, Akhnoor, Arnia and some other places on the international border in Jammu district,” the police said.
