New Delhi: After almost five years of relative calm, ceasefire violations along the Line of Control by Pakistani troops are almost becoming a regular feature now. The latest incident took place on Saturday morning when there was heavy cross-border firing in Krishnaghati sector of Jammu and Kashmir. While the Indian DGMO (director-general of military operations) lodged a 'strong protest' with his Pakistani counterpart about the incident, Pakistani Army in turn claimed it was actually the Indian Army which had opened fire first. Indian Army officers, however, said their troops had opened fire at some 'unidentified militants' who were ‘‘seen on our side of the LoC' at about 8.30 am.
