Srinagar: An Indian soldier was injured on Saturday morning as the Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked shelling and firing on the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Police said the Pakistan Army resorted to heavy mortar shelling and firing in Mendhar sector of the LoC. “Pakistan shelling started at 5 a.m. and continued till 6.30 a.m. Indian Army retaliated effectively using same calibre weapons,” the police said.

The latest ceasefire violation comes a day after Union home minister Rajnath Singh said India aims to completely seal its border with Pakistan by 2018. “The Home Ministry has set up a target of fully sealing the Indo-Pakistan border by December 2018. To achieve this target, the action plan prepared is fully time bound and the implementation will be fully monitored periodically, monthly and quarterly,” Singh had said.

Recent weeks have tensions escalate with Pakistan following the September 18 terror attack on an Indian Army camp at Uri in Jammu & Kashmir and the surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the LoC by the Indian Army.
