LoC firing:Army officer among four martyred,three injured in Rajouri

The post of Supreme Commander of the Indian Army is held by the President of India.

The deceased have been identified as captain Kapil Kundu, riflemen Ram Avtar and Shubam Singh and havildar Roshan Lal.

Shahnaz Bano, 15, of Shahpur was injured in the Pakistani firing and hospitalised, he said. Pakistan used "small arms, automatics, mortars and missiles" in the unprovoked firing, it said.

"Indian Army retaliated strongly and effectively and heavy damage has been inflicted on Pakistani Army Posts". Last week, the Pak army also targeted military and civilian facilities in almost a dozen areas of the Balakote sector.

At least 14 people including eight civilians and six security personnel had been killed in Pakistan firing in the Jammu region between January 18 and 22.

Earlier today, a 15-year-old girl and a soldier were injured as Pakistani troops violated ceasefire by targeting forward villages and border outposts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch and Rajouri districts, the officials said.

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

On Thursday night, alert Border Security Force personnel had foiled an infiltration attempt by a group of militants, who under cover fire of Pakistani Rangers across the International Border had tried to sneak into in Samba district.

Several hundreds have abandoned their homes close to the border, leaving behind cattle and crops.
