The Indian and Pakistani armies traded heavy fire on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district on Friday, the Defence Ministry said.
 
"At about 8.30 a.m., Pakistan initiated unprovoked shelling using mortars and firing small arms along the LoC in Sawjian sector," Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Devender Anand said. 
 
The Indian Army retaliated "befittingly", he added.
 
Intermittent firing exchanges were still going on.
