Jammu: Pakistani troops on Saturday fired mortar shells targeting villages along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district, police said.
"Pakistani troops fired mortar shells and small arms from across the border in the Lam area of the Nowshera sector around 6.15 pm", a police official said.
He said Indian troops retaliated and the exchange of fire continued for 15 minutes.
There was no casualty reported in the Pakistani firing, the official said.
As per the Jammu and Kashmir Police, approximately 5 kilograms of explosives have been recovered from the drone.
This comes after army officials revealed that the new modus operandi to indoctrinate and train Kashmiri youth in militancy was to call them through proper visa channels, rather than having them take the risk of crossing the border illegally.
