Pak Firing again: 4 Indian soldiers martyred
New Delhi: In a fresh round of ceasefire violation by Pakistan, four army personnel were killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri Sector.

The dead include: Capt Kapil Kundu, riflemen Ram Avtar and Subham Singh; and Havildar Roshan Lal. The one injured has been identified as Lance Naik Iqbal Ahmed.

Pakistani forces opened unprovoked and heavy firing and shelling along LoC in Bhimbher Gali sector of Rajouri district this evening, said a senior army official.
Indian Army was giving a befitting reply as heavy exchanges were on, said the officer.

Earlier in the day, a 15-year-old girl was injured as Pakistan intensified firing at Indian military posts and villages along the Line of Control or LoC in Poonch and Rajouri districts.

Fourteen persons, including eight civilians, were killed and over 70 others injured in intense shelling by Pakistan along the IB in Jammu, Kathua and Samba districts and LoC in Poonch and Rajouri districts from January 18 to 22.

While there were no ceasefire violations by Pakistan reported along the IB since January 22, intermittent shelling has taken place along the LoC.
