Srinagar: Pakistani troops along the LoC haven't stopped firing in Jammu and Kashmir regardless of two days of talks between the BSF chief and the Pakistan Rangers' counterpart in New Delhi.

“Pakistani troops again violated border ceasefire on Friday evening in two sectors along the LoC in Poonch district of Jammu province,” Jammu-based defence spokesman Lt Colonel Manish Mehta told The New Indian Express.

The Pakistani troops had fired from both small and heavy weapons towards two of the sectors of Army posts, including Balakote in Poonch from 11 pm, Lt Colonel Mehta said.

 “Army men deployed at the LoC returned the fire effectively,” Mehta said, adding that there was no loss of lives or injury reported from Indian side during the exchange of fire.

The firing took place hours after Pakistani Rangers DG Major General Burki and BSF DG D K Pathak concluded the two-day level talks.
