“They are using small arms and automatic weapons. Our troops have retaliated using same caliber weapons. Firing exchanges are still going on in the area.”

Pakistan army had fired at Indian positions on the LoC on Friday also.

“Pakistani troops opened small arms fire on Indian troops deployed in forward posts in Nowshera sector. The intermittent fire lasted till 11.55 p.m. Troops on our side of LoC retaliated appropriately.”
