'BSF Solider injured as Pak violates ceasefire in Poonch'

Srinagar: In yet another ceasefire violation, a Border Security Force solider was injured when Pakistani troops fired at Indian posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district Monday.

"Pak troops resorted to small arms firing on Kripan-I, Kripan-II and Kranti posts along LoC in the district at around 12:00 hours today," a defence spokesman said.

The Indian troops fired in retaliation and the firing continued for half an hour, he said, adding that one BSF jawan, identified as P K Mishra, received bullet injury and was refered to Command Hospital for treatment.

Pakistani troops fired from their Dakoo and Chuha posts on our positions, the spokesman said, adding this is the 11th ceasefire violation by Pakistan this year.

Earlier on May 22 night, Pakistani troops had targeted Indian posts along the Indo-Pak border in Poonch district.
