"Pakistan Army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars from 0815 hours in Poonch and Bhimbher Gali sectors along the Line of Control (LoC)", the spokesman said.

Police chief Shesh Paul Vaid said the terrorists had planned an Uri-type attack that had taken place previous year, resulting in the killing of 19 Indian soldiers and the retaliatory surgical strikes on Pakistani terror camps by India.

General Rawat said the Indian Army, with a robust counter-infiltration infrastructure along the 778-km LoC and a strong counter-terrorism operations team, is ready to continue "welcoming" infiltrating terrorists and "burying them two-and-a-half feet under the ground".

The heavy shelling, which began at 7:15am, is still going on it the area due to which citizens are unable to leave their houses. The incident has come three days before first anniversary of "surgical strike" carried out by India past year on September 29against militants in Pakistani Kashmir.
