Jammu, May 21 - The Pakistan army violated the bilateral ceasefire agreement in place along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir firing unprovokedly at Indian positions near the LoC in Poonch district late Tuesday.

The incident took place at Krishna Ghati area of the LoC.

Defence spokesman Colonel Manish Mehta told IANS in Jammu: Pakistan soldiers violated ceasefire in Krishna Ghati area of LoC in Poonch around 11 p.m. yesterday (Tuesday).

They opened unprovoked firing using small arms and automatic weapons.
