Pakistan continued to violate the ceasefire targeting Indian posts for the second successive day on Sunday.

The mortar shelling and small arms firing from across the border in Kalal area of Nowshera sector started at around 6.45 pm, prompting strong and effective retaliation by the Indian army, a defence spokesman said.

The cross-border shelling has been going on for over two days along the LoC now.

As per latest reports, Pakistan has again violated the ceasefire and has initiated shelling near the Nowshera sector today morning.

India’s Lance Naik Sandeep Thapa had received fatal injuries and was martyred due to Pakistan’s repeated shelling on Saturday. In retaliatory fire, the Indian army had destroyed a Pakistani post across the Rajouri sector in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday.

According to reports, during the intervening night of Thursday-Friday, the Indian army had foiled various infiltration bids by terrorists to cross over to the Indian side. According to army sources, in a bid to help terrorists enter India, Pakistan has set up a major communication hub in Kali Ghati area of Neelam Valley in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The communication hub intends to help push the terrorists, which are backed by Pakistan’s army, into the Indian side. With a range of 50-60 kilometres, this hub facilitates the terrorists to communicate with their guides even across the LoC.

On Thursday, Northern Army Commander Lt. Gen Ranbir Singh had asserted that in the last few days, Pakistan was trying hard to help infiltrators enter into India. Indian army positions have been alerted to thwart any misadventure by Pakistan army on the LoC.

The abrogation of Article 370 has rattled Pakistan, which has since stepped up its efforts to create unrest in Kashmir. In the wake of this development, it has resorted to multiple ceasefire violations.
