In yet another ceasefire violation along the LoC , Pakistani troops opened fire at forward posts in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, a defence spokesman said.
The Pakistani troops targeted Indian posts at about 9 am, prompting strong and effective retaliation from the Indian Army, the spokesman said.
