NEW DELHI: India has lodged a protest with the Pakistan High Commission over the two consecutive ceasefire violations by the country in Jammu and Kashmir’s Akhnoor sector.

Three civilians were severely injured, after Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked firing in RS Pura sector and Shahpur sector of Poonch earlier today.

Those injured have been admitted to a local hospital. According to reports, Pakistani forces started unprovoked firing on Indian posts around 2:00 a.m., which was retaliated by the Indian side.

On Wednesday, one person was killed and four others were injured after Pakistani forces violated the ceasefire agreement in the Pargwal sector of Akhnoor in the state.
