The Indian DGMO highlighted that "all ceasefire violations were initiated by the Pakistan Army and the Indian Army only responded appropriately," an Army statement said.

The Indian officer also put across emphatically that the "trend of infiltration along the LoC continued with the active support of Pakistan forward posts."

Meanwhile, heavy shelling and firing exchanges were on between Indian and Pakistani Army on Monday morning on the Line of Control (LoC), a defence official said.

Pakistan, initiating the attack, resorted to unprovoked targeting of the Indian positions on the LoC in Bhimber Gali sector of Jammu and Kashmir, defence ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta said.

"The indiscriminate firing using small arms, automatics and mortars that started from 7.30 am is still on," Mehta told IANS in Jammu.

The Indian Army was retaliating strongly and effectively, he added
