Earlier, BSF resorted to unprovoked firing across the Line of Control (LoC), in yet another violation of the ceasefire agreement.

The retaliatory fire targeted Indian posts following which clouds of smoke were seen rising from there. There have been no reports of losses on the Pakistani side, in the wake of fresh violation on the LoC.

On Tuesday, the Pakistan Foreign Office summoned the Deputy Indian High Commissioner and lodged strong protest over repeated violation of the LoC and Working Boundary by India.
