The armies of India and Pakistan on Tuesday exchanged heavy fire and shelling along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir.

"There has been unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistani Army in Sunderbani sector of Rajouri district from 0710 hours today," a defence spokesman said.

Pakistani troops used mortar bombs and automatic weapons on Indian positions, which continued till 1100 hours, he said.

Indian security forces gave a befitting reply to the Pakistani troops, he said.

There was also overnight firing along LoC in Pallanwala sector of Jammu district.

Yesterday, Pakistani troops resorted to shelling and firing on Indian posts in four sectors along the LoC in Pallanwala sector of Jammu, Sunderbani and Naushera sectors of Rajouri and Khadi sector of Poonch district, in which two persons including a jawan were injured.

Pakistan yesterday said seven of its soldiers were killed in firing by Indian troops across the LoC.

The 2003 India-Pakistan ceasefire agreement has virtually become redundant with a whopping 286 incidents of firing and shelling along LoC and IB in Jammu and Kashmir that resulted in death of 26 people, including 14 security personnel.
