Srinagar: Pakistan used heavy artillery guns on the Line of Control (LoC) on Wednesday leading to India warning it against any misadventure.
The Indian Army retaliated by firing Bofors gun to give a befitting reply. Intense shelling was reported all along the LoC on Wednesday and the use of heavy calibre weapons led to a tense situation, reports quoting Defence sources said.
Sources said Pakistan used 155 mm artillery guns in the Nowshera sector. There has been a sharp rise in the incidents of ceasefire violations after India carried out air strikes to hit militant camps in Balakot in Pakistan.
The firing intensified amid propaganda war unleashed by Pakistan about the air strike, forcing Indian Air Force to issue caution against the information warfare unleashed from across the border to discredit the Indian armed forces. (Agencies)
