The Indian Army on Friday (May 8) gave a befitting reply in response to the firing by Pakistani forces in the Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir. It is to be noted that this is the third is the sixth consecutive day of firing and shelling by Pakistani troops along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to latest inputs, at least 3-4 soldiers of Pakistani forces have reportedly been killed and five are said to have been injured in the retaliatory firing by Indian Army. The Indian troops also inflicted heavy firing on Pakistan Army posts and damaged them.

One civilian, Nisar Ali, a resident of Qasba village, was injured in the shelling by Pakistan and was hospitalised, officials said.
