The Pakistani Army also used mortars and small arms to attack Indian posts, they said.

The firing has more or less stopped now, they said.

India and Pakistan were engaged in a major stand-off in January this year after Pakistani troops along with their Special Forces and LeT terrorists intruded and mutilated the bodies of two soldiers Lance Naiks Sudhakar Singh and Hemraj and beheaded one of them.

After the incidents, there was tension along the LoC especially in the Krishna Ghati sector in Jammu where the incident had taken place and the situation was de-escalated after talks between the two Director Generals of Military Operations.
