J&K: Two persons including Army jawan martyred along LoC in Poonch

In Jammu and Kashmir, two persons including an Army jawan were martyred as Pakistani forces again resorted to firing and shelling along the Line of Control in Poonch district. The other martyr was a defence porter. 

Six army personnel including a defence porter were also injured in Pakistani shelling.

Defence spokesperson Col. MM Joshi told AIR that the forces from across the Line of Control started unprovoked firing and shelling targeting Indian positions and civilian areas in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch.

The troops guarding the borderline retaliated and gave a befitting reply to the Pakistani shelling and the exchange of fire continued for one hour.
