The Pakistan Army alleged that the Indian troops on Saturday resorted to firing in Nakiyal sector at the Line of Control in violation of the ceasefire agreement.

"Indian troops committed ceasefire violation and targeted civilians with mortars in village Thruti. Four civilians were injured," a spokesman of the army said.

The injured included two women, a 12-year-old boy and a man, the spokesman said.

"Pakistani troops effectively responded to silent Indian firing," the spokesman said.
