There was no immediate reaction from Pakistan.

In the last six months, the Army patrols along the LoC have been asked to take measures to avoid getting caught in ambushes or Border Action Team (BAT) actions by the Pakistani Special Forces.

He said Army men also retaliated and fired on the Pakistani troops positions and bunkers.

"One major, three soldiers got killed in cross border firing by Pakistan troops in Bhimber Gali area of Keri sector on Saturday afternoon at around 1215 hours", official spokesperson here said.

Another soldier, who was grievously injured, later succumbed to his injuries, police said, taking the toll to four.

According to Indian officials, over 600 incidents of cease-fire violations were recorded along the LoC and the International Border (IB) since the beginning of this year. Two other personnel also sustained injuries and are under medical treatment. "It happened around 12.15 pm", a source said.

The Indian army named the dead officer as Major Moharkar Prafulla Ambadas, while the injured soldiers as Lance Naik Gurmail Singh and Sepoy Pargat Singh of 16 Corps, Defence spokesperson Colonel NN Joshi confirmed.

Indian army says Pakistani soldiers targeted their posts in Rajouri area of India-administered Kashmir in an "unprovoked cease-fire violation".

Following the incident, heavy cross-border firing and shelling was reported at several places in the region. Lance Naik Gurmail Singh, 34, hailed from District Amritsar in Punjab and is survived by his wife Kuljit Kaur and a daughter.

India and Pakistan have a long history of bitter relations over the Himalayan territory of Kashmir, which is claimed by both in its entirety.

The skirmishes have led to killings of soldiers as well as civilians.

The latest violation of the ceasefire agreement took place at a time when Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was camping in Rajouri district headquarters to address people's grievances, they said.

She has conveyed her heartfelt sympathies to the families of slain troopers.

Singh offered condolences with the bereaved families and prayed for eternal peace to their departed souls.
