Indian soldier injured in firing across LoC

Jammu: An Indian Army soldier was injured in firing from across the Line of Control (LoC) which divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan, military officials said Saturday.

The incident took place at Kranti post in Poonch sector, about 200 km northwest of Jammu.

 Official sources said that in violation of ceasefire a sudden burst of fire from across the LoC left a soldier of 28 Grenadiers injured.

Indian troops retaliated and the exchange of fire lasted for half an hour.

The Indian Army believes that these incidents of firing from Pakistani side of the LoC are meant to facilitate infiltration of militants into Kashmir.
