Reference News Network reported on March 6 that Pakistan and Indian troops opened fire on each others positions in the disputed area of Kashmir on the morning of March 4, according to Russian satellite news agency quoting Lieutenant Colonel Anand, spokesman for Indias Ministry of Defence.
Anand said that at about 3 a.m. on March 4 (around 5 a.m. Beijing time), Pakistani troops opened fire on the Akhnoor area of the Indian-controlled state of Jammu-Kashmir, and Indian forces fired back. The two sides ceased fire at about 6.30 local time.

At present, the Indian side has not disclosed the casualties. However, the Indian military pointed out that because of the extremely dangerous fire, all schools within 5 kilometers of the actual control line between India and Pakistan remained closed on the 4th day.
A convoy of Indian Central Reserve Police Forces was attacked by homemade bombs on February 14 in Jammu-Kashmir, killing 45 people. India holds Pakistan responsible, which Islamabad refutes, and the two countries are now on the verge of large-scale military conflict.
