Indian Defence Ministry accuses Pakistan of ceasefire violation in Kashmir

Indian Defence Ministry spokesman, Lieut. Col. Devender Anand said that Pakistani troops violated ceasefire in the disputed Kashmir region once again by shelling Indian military positions.

"The Pakistani Army committed unprovoked ceasefire violation in the Sunderbani sector at around 10.30 p.m. (17:00 GMT) on Tuesday. The firing continued till 4.30 a.m. Indian positions retaliated strongly," Sputnik cited the spokesman as saying.

Anand also said the sides traded fire in Rajouri and Poonch on Tuesday, with one Indian soldier being injured.

On March 4, Indian and Pakistani troops exchanged fire in Kashmir after a brief lull since a dangerous escalation between the two countries that erupted last week.
