PaK firms banned from LoC trade, 8 from Kashmir

Pakistan violates ceasefire in Poonch, 45-year-old woman killed

Woman killed as armies of India, Pak exchange fire on LoC in Poonch

Thirty-four companies based in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) have been blacklisted from trading on the twin cross-Line of Control (LoC) routes of Uri-Muzaffarabad and Poonch-Rawalakote in Jammu and Kashmir.

A 40-year old woman was killed when mortar shells fired from across the border exploded at Gohlad Kalran village.

She was standing in front of her house when the splinters hit her. "The Pakistani army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatic weapons and mortars from 5".

"The Indian positions are effectively retaliating", the sources added.

The exchange of fire stopped at 0645 hours, he said.

Pakistan on Thursday accused Delhi of committing more than 600 ceasefire violations this year.

On August 8, the Pakistani troops resorted to firing and shelling in the Krishnagati sector of Poonch district, killing Sepoy Pawan Singh Sugra (21).
