"The Indian military is retaliated strongly and effectively," police sources said.

On 18 October, four civilians were injured during ceasefire violations by the Pakistani Army on the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district.

The injured included three labourers and a woman in the Mankote area, a police officer had said.

Due to heightened tensions between the two Armies on the LoC, no traditional exchange of sweets and greetings took place on Diwali.
