There was firing from across the border along LoC in Saujian sector of Poonch district this morning, Senior Superintendent of Police, Poonch, Shamsher Hussain said.

Pakistani troops also targeted forward areas in Kirni and Shahpur belts, he said, adding there was no injury to anyone in the cross-border firing.

A Defence Spokesman said the troops retaliated to the Pakistani firing.

"There was no loss of life", he said.

Divisional Commissioner, Jammu Zone, Shant Manu said on Wednesday that "there has been no firing by Pakistan along the IB in the past few days. It is calm."

"Firing by Pakistan is going on along the LoC in Saujian belt of Poonch," he added.

However, senior Army officers of India and Pakistan on Tuesday spoke over the hotline in an effort to resolve the current border tension.

Pakistan's Director Military Operations (DMO) talked with his Indian counterpart as part of routine interactions at the senior military level.

"The director military operations contacted today with Indian army to discuss the border situation," said the official.

He said Pakistan conveyed concern to India over consistent "unprovoked firing" along the Line of Control and the international border.

After a brief lull, Pakistani troops violated ceasefire twice on Tuesday and resorted to heavy firing and mortar shelling targeting 10 Indian forward posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district injuring a woman.

India and Pakistan have been trading heavy mortar and gun fire along the international border and LoC since October 1.

While eight people died and 90 others, including 13 security men, were injured in the firing by Pakistani troops in Jammu and Kashmir, in Pakistan 13 civilians have been killed.

In 2013, the Pakistani and Indian DGMOs had met and promised to uphold the 2003 LoC ceasefire accord.
