Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire by resorting to unprovoked firing towards Indian positions along the Line of Control (LoC) in Tangdhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara district on Tuesday (June 16), a defence spokesperson said.

The Indian Army gave a befitting response to the Pakistani aggression, he said.

“On 16 June 2020, in the morning hours, Pakistan initiated an unprovoked Ceasefire Violation (CFV) along the LoC in Tangdhar (in north Kashmirs Kupwara district) by firing mortars and other weapons,” defence spokesperson Col Rajesh Kalia said.
