A woman was killed in the latest ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch on Saturday.

Indian Army personnel guarding the border posts retaliated strongly and effectively.

The deceased soldier belonged to Village Tarsana, district Morena, Madhya Pradesh.

In a separate incident from the LoC's Keran sector, an Army jawan was injured in a landmine explosion. He is survived by his wife Omavati Devi, a son and a daughter. "A woman, who was standing in front of the house, received critical splinter injuries and died on spot", he said. The victim has been identified as Ruqia Bi.

"They remained confined to their homes and once the firing and shelling subsided, they moved to underground bunkers for safety", he said.
