An Indian soldier was killed and two others were injured on Tuesday in heavy firing by Pakistan along the de facto border in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.
The Indian Army said it retaliated the firing and inflicted "heavy damage" on Pakistani posts in the Naushera sector of the Line of Control (LoC) - the de facto border that divides Jammu and Kashmir between the two countries.
On Tuesday, Pakistan also fired heavy mortar shells at Indian positions at other border sectors in Rajouri and Poonch districts.
Shelling commenced in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch, defence spokesman Lt. Col. Manish Mehta told IANS.
"Our troops are adequately responding. Shelling and firing exchanges are still going on in the area," he said.
