The armies of India and Pakistan resorted to heavy firing along the volatile Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district, official said on Monday.

A defence spokesman said the Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked mortar shelling and firing of small arms in the Nowshera sector at around 8.15 am. “Our troops retaliated effectively," the ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Devender Anand told the media.
Reports said intermittent firing was still continuing in the area with the two armies shelling each other's positions in Rajouri district.
"At about 0815 hours, shelling of mortars and firing of small arms was reported along the LoC which was retaliated effectively,” he said.
Earlier, Pakistani troops on Friday shelled forward areas in Swajin sector of Poonch, leaving three persons injured.
With Pakistan using heavy weaponry and 120 mm mortar bombs targeting civilian areas along the LoC in Poonch, people have been advised to stay indoors, officials said.
Meanwhile, expressing serious concerns over escalating tensions between the armies of India and Pakistan especially in Poonch and Rajouri sector, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference on Monday said people on the both sides of fence become primary targets and bear the brunt every time there is exchange of firing.
“The lingering Kashmir dispute was the main reason of rift between India and Pakistan and until the issue of Kashmir is resolved amicably the bitterness between the two countries prevailing since last seven decades won't end,” a Hurriyat spokesman said.
“Demanding the rollback of anti people highway closure order the Hurriyat stated that barring civilian traffic on the highway twice a week has caused immense hardships for the common masses. Hurriyat said that decision of closing highway for two days a week is an anti people move,” the statement added.
“Hurriyat strongly denounced the shifting of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik already under PSA from Jammu Jail to Delhi and handing him over to NIA and also the ED summon to the minor daughters of resistance leader Shabir Ahmed Shah and shifting of resistance and religious leaders to Haryana jail,” the statement said.
“Hurriyat said that shifting of prisoners to outside prisons was against the Geneva Convention and also the Supreme Court of India rulings that stresses on lodging the inmates in jails closer to their homes. It said shifting prisoners to jails that are thousands of kilometers away from their homes has added more to the worries of relatives of inmates who are facing tremendous hardships in seeking permission to meet their dear ones,” it added.
