    Poonch: An Army jawan was injured when Pakistani troops opened heavy fire this evening on Indian positions in the Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir in yet another ceasefire violation--the third this month alone.

    Armed with heavy machine guns, the troops fired rockets on the Indian forward posts in Krishnaghati sub-sector along the Line of Control, Brigadier Gen Staff (BGF) of 16 Corps S Dua said.

    The Pakistani troops fired on the Indian posts for an hour wounding a jawan, he told PTI.

    This is the third ceasefire violation by Pakistan this month in Poonch sector.

    Indian troops maintained restraint and did not retaliate, Brigadier S Dua said, adding a protest would be lodged tomorrow.

    Pakistani troops had fired on Indian posts in Kerni at Jallas sub-sector along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district on October 1 and 2.

    In the last one month, the ceasefire was violated by Pakistani troops on September 28 and 29 in the Krishnaghati sub-sector.

    ^^ Unlike Pakistani army that has autonomy to act whenever and wherever they are, Indian military has to get permission from Delhi to even retaliate. Meaning that the lives of soldiers stationed at the border are in the hands of bloody treacherous politicians sitting in air conditioned palaces of the capital. Unless and until there's a spineless central government ruling India, our Jawans will keep suffering their indecisiveness and corrupt anti-national mentality.

    My cousin has seen this and is very frustrated about it that being in Army, he and his fellow men have no right to even return fire until they've orders from corrupt %^&*$# politicians.

    Can't be this taken to higher ranks? Bcoz we have seen that there were more Ceasefire violations this year to help skirmishes...

    We have a very worst Central government with no majority............ :angry_10:

    In the olden days, one required to take permission to retaliate.

    It was with much difficulties that the Army could get permission to open fire in retaliation.

    Nowadays, each level of command (officers) have certain weapons they can retaliate with if the need arises. However, given the mentality, the next higher HQ is informed before opening fire.

    We retaliate only with small arms and in rare cases, with MMGs.

    The fact that the Pakistanis could wound one of our men indicates that India does not open fire without provocation.

    It must also be understood that all efforts is made to ensure that the situation does not escalate into a very serious one.

    Hot line at Delhi to Islamabad must be ringing each time there are these incidents.

    A very careful review is undertaken and then further action is decided.

    There is no doubt extra caution is exercised because of the govt policy.

    Whether the govt is incompetent or otherwise cannot be commented upon by the Army since it is not supposed to do so, no matter what they feel about it.

    It is a rare instance that the Chief had spoken on the controversy over the AFSPA.

    In good old times when there was no cease fire on the LOC there were days fixed by Indian Army for giving a DOSE to the enemy. Sometimes 10000 yes 10 thousand shells were fired over a 3 or 4 day period

    These repeated violations have made the cease fire meaning less..Time to "open" up the guns

    But what's the decision taken? Every time the hotline at delhi and islamabad ring whenever such incident happens, is all of no use. :emot0:

    They are repeatedly doing ceasefire violations!! We are losing our precious soldiers.. If the govt is not taking standard measures or actions against these violations, young Indians will not have much interest in joining forces...

    Soldiers must have right to defend themselves.
