POONCH -- Pakistan violated ceasefire in Shahpur along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch, Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.

Heavy mortar shelling and firing was reported from the Pakistani side in Poonch.

The fresh attack comes after terrorists attacked the Indian Army and BSF camps in Baramulla, Jammu and Kashmir, in which a BSF personnel was killed.

The terrorists attacked near a camp of the 46 Rashtriya Rifles in Baramulla late on Sunday night.

The terrorists, whose numbers are still unknown, tried to enter the camp through a public park near it, but failed to breach the security.

Earlier, Pakistan targeted Indian posts along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Akhnoor tehsil late Sunday evening.

Pakistan has stepped up cross-border firing after the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
