June 3rd, 2009 - 8:08 pm ICT by ANI  

Kashmir, June 3(ANI): In what is seen as a violation of the ceasefire agreement between India and Pakistan, the Pakistani Army on Wednesday fired at the Indian posts near the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Pakistani troops fired three to four bursts in Saujian sector of Rajouri at 10.45 a.m. today. The unprovoked firing, which was not retaliated, caused no damage,” an Indian Army official said.

The ceasefire agreement between the nuclear-armed neighbours was signed more than five years ago.

“The Indian Army has taken a serious note of the ceasefire violation. We shall be sending a message across and ask the reason for this violation,” the official added.

This is not the first time that Pakistan has violated the ceasefire agreement.

Earlier, firing of two mortar shells at the Indians post were reported on May 9, 2009. (ANI)
