Indian and Pakistani troops on Monday traded heavy fire across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district, defence officials said.

Defence sources said Pakistani soldiers resorted to unprovoked firing at Indian positions in Silikote area in Uri sector on Monday evening and Indian personnel “retaliated strongly and effectively destroying a Pakistan bunker on the other side of the LoC”.

“Heavy firing exchanges are now going on in the area. So far, no loss of life or casualties have been reported from our side,” a source said.
