India, Pak troops exchange fire along LoC

Rawalpindi (Pakistan) : Pakistan Army troops and Indian paramilitary Border Security Forces (BSF) exchanged fire along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Neza Pir sector this morning.

The statement provided by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) claimed the Indian troops along the border “resorted to heavy unprovoked firing and shelling” at around 11:40 p.m. on Saturday, reports Dawn.

The statement further said the unprovoked firing continued until about 4:45 a.m., adding the Pakistan Army troops provided a befitting response.

According to the ISPR, no casualties have been reported so far.

Media reports suggest that the cross-border firing between the arch-rivals is the first instance in nearly six months.

Both countries had signed the border ceasefire agreement in 2003 and have frequently accused each other of breaching it. (ANI)
