MUZAFFARABAD, Sept 2: Indian and Pakistani troops traded fire in some areas of Nakial sector in the Kotli district of Azad Jammu and Kashmir on Monday. However, no casualties were reported.

Official sources and local people told Dawn that shelling took place in Lanjot, Balakot and Dheri Dabsi villages, but it remained largely from “post to post.”

Confirming the shelling, Kotli Deputy Commissioner Masoodur Rehman said three state-run educational institutions in these villages had been closed for three days.
