The ceasefire agreement was yet again "violated" by Pakistan as bullets were fired from across the border on Indian posts at the Line of Control in Sabzian sector of bordering Poonch district in Jammu and Kashmir, sources said in Jammu on Saturday.

"The Pakistani troops fired indiscriminately from their post number 1080 on Indian posts of 4 Bihar Regiment and 192 Bn of Border Security Force in a bid to give cover fire to a group of infiltrators late on Friday night," sources told UNI, adding that the fire was retaliated during which the armed militants returned back.

However, there were no reports of any injury and casualty to any security personnel during the exchange.

For the last three months, Pakistan has committed ceasefire violations around 30 times in Poonch district alone in which three army jawans have been killed and five reportedly wounded.
