A 15-year-old girl was injured as Pakistani forces violated ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir today, officials said. Pakistani troops targeted forward posts and villages along the LoC in Shahpur sector and the exchange of fire between the two sides was on when reports last came, a police official said. Shahnaz Bano, 15, of Islamabad village of Shahpur was injured in the Pakistani firing and hospitalised, he said. A Defence spokesman said Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars around 1110 hours. The Indian Army retaliated strongly and effectively, he said.

Fourteen persons, including eight civilians, were killed and over 70 others injured in intense shelling by Pakistan along the IB in Jammu, Kathua and Samba districts and LoC in Poonch and Rajouri districts from January 18 to 22. While there were no ceasefire violations by Pakistan reported along the IB since January 22, intermittent shelling has taken place along the LoC.
