Since the violations on Saturday night when the Indian Army claimed to have stopped an infiltration bid, there has been no exchange of fire. Senior Army officers said that since the incidents of January 8 when two Indian soldiers were killed and January 9, when a Pakistani soldier was shot dead, there has been no major exchange of fire along the LoC.
Sources pointed out that there have been more serious violations of the ceasefire agreement in the past when the Pakistani side have used not only heavy machine guns but also mortars to target Indian posts. Pakistan, however, has never admitted that it has used mortars, but instead blames terrorists or irregular forces. This, despite being presented with samples of Pakistani-manufactured ordnance.
