Karnah (NVI): In yet another ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops today targeted three villages in the Karnah sector of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district along the Line of Control (LoC), defence officials said.

Pakistani Rangers resorted to unprovoked shelling in different hamlets of Karnah along LoC, they said.

Defence sources said Pakistan shelled Hajitara, Taad and Dhani villages. The shelling created panic among locals who were evacuated to safer places. Some of the mortar shells fired by the Pakistani army landed in some parts of affected villages, they said.

Defence sources added that the Indian Army retaliated effectively.
