Srinagar: Pakistani troops on Sunday violated ceasefire by firing mortar shells towards Indian army posts in Uri sector near the Line of Control (LoC).
“They (Pakistan army) started firing mortar shells towards our posts at Churunda village in Uri sector around 3.15am,” an army spokesman said.
He said some of the shells landed close to civilian habitation but there was no damage done.
The spokesman said the Indian army retaliated the Pakistani shelling briefly after which there has been quiet from both sides.
In Islamabad, the Pakistani army alleged that one of its soldiers was killed and another injured.
State-run Radio Pakistan quoted a military spokesman as saying that two Pakistani soldiers were wounded and one of them succumbed to his injuries later.
Indian army headquarters in New Delhi, however, said “no such incident has taken place where our soldiers have attacked any Pakistani post.”
Indian army sources said this allegation by the Pakistani army seems to be an attempt to cover up its firing on Indian posts in the Uri sector.
