"This was evident from continued attempts of sniping and targeting of our troops undertaken through cross border actions duly supported by Pakistani Army troops", he said.

Director General Military Operations (DGMOs) of Pakistan and India established a hotline contact after the Indian forces targeted a military vehicle of Pak Army in Neelum Valley killing four soldiers yesterday.

India's ministry of defence spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Rajesh Kalia said he had no knowledge of the incident.

Kashmir is split between India and Pakistan and is claimed by both in its entirety.

"Continuous ceasefire violation on the LoC by the Indian army shows New Delhi is not honest regarding peace in South Asia".
