Pakistan on Monday violated ceasefire in the Saujian and Mandi sectors of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir.

It had, earlier in the day, done the same in the Shaharpur sector of the district.

"Today at 11am Pakistan army carried out unprovoked ceasefire violation in Poonch using small arms, automatics and mortars. It has appropriately been responded to. We have given them a befitting reply. The ceasefire violation still on," Defence Public Relations Officer Manish Mehta told ANI confirming the ceasefire violation.

The neighbouring country has carried out several ceasefire violations since the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes across the Line of Control killing 38 terrorists. Two Pakistani soldiers also lost their lives in the strikes.

The Pakistani Rangers violated ceasefire and tried to infiltrate the Indian territory along the border in Punjab's Gurdaspur city on Monday morning .

The violation took place in Chakri village after a Border Security Force (BSF) post was attacked by terrorists early morning.

A BSF jawan was killed and two others, along with two army personnel,  were injured after terrorists launched an attack on the 46 Rashtriya Rifles army and BSF camps in the Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district on Sunday around 10:30 pm. Two terrorists were also killed during the firing.

The injured jawan has been admitted to the Rashtriya Rifles camp hospital and is out of danger, ANI reported.

The firing in the district ended on Monday morning and search operations have also been called off.
