J&K: Pak resorts to cross border firing along LOC in Naushera sector

PTI
In Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistani troops today violated ceasefire yet again along the Line of Control in Rajouri district prompting strong and effective retaliation by the Indian Army.

According to a defence spokesperson, the shelling from across the border started in Nowshera sector around 12.30 pm. 

He said Indian Army retaliated strongly and effectively adding that there was no report of any casualty on the Indian side in the latest round of firing.   

In view of the unprovoked and frequent cross-border shelling, Jammu and Kashmir Government has sanctioned additional 400 individual bunkers for Poonch and Rajouri districts with 200 additional bunkers for each district. 

To ensure speedy construction of these bunkers, funds would be placed with the Deputy Commissioners through the Rural Development Department. 

The bunkers would get built in the next one month as per the prescribed specifications. According to locals, the bunkers have been found to be an effective response to cross-border shelling, providing border residents a safe place to shelter themselves during shelling incidents.
