    Jammu, Aug 13 (PTI) Violating the ceasefire again, Pakistani troops today fired from small arms along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district.

    This is third ceasefire violations along the LoC in Poonch district in the past over 24 hours.

    "There was a brief ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops along the LoC in Mankote sector of Poonch district early this morning", a police officer said today.

    Yesterday, Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) Naib Sudebar Jagram Singh Tomar and a woman identified as Raqia Bi were killed as Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire twice along the Line of Control (LoC) and shelled forward posts and villages in Poonch sector.
