The ceasefire violation took place near LoC at Manga Kamalkote in Uri, a police official said.

He said the shelling by Pakistani forces damaged a cow-shed and a house, both belonging to locals.

However, no loss of life was reported, he added.

The Uri sector has been subject to tensions of cross-border issues as the Indian Army was attacked in the area in September last year.

Deemed as one of the deadliest attacks on the army in Jammu and Kashmir, heavily armed militants stormed a battalion headquarters of the army in north Kashmir's Uri town, killing 17 jawans and injuring 20 other personnel.

Recently, Pakistan subjected India to another ceasefire violation along the LoC in Uri sector in June. The attacks lead to a woman getting injured. The army retaliated to the Pakistani firing on the latter occasion.
