The Indian Army has retaliated after Pakistan violated ceasefire by firing small arms and intense shelling with mortars along LoC in Shahpur, Kirni, Degwar sectors in Poonch, at about 1730 hours today.
One army personnel lost his life while two personnel have sustained injuries in Pakistan-initiated ceasefire violation in Nowgam sector of north Kashmir on Saturday, said Indian Army sources.
Meanwhile, the locals sought the help of the administration as kids and senior citizens were very scared to step out from their houses.
"Continuous firing from Pakistan side is underway here since morning. People face trouble due to the firing as sometimes we suffer property loss as well. However, nobody has suffered any loss in today's firing," said a resident.
"Firing started at around 9 am today and heavy shelling is taking place from Pakistan's side. Indian Army is retaliating too. Kids and senior citizens here are too scared to step out. The government should do something in this regard, we need more facilities here," said Mohammad Kashim, a local.
