Jammu: An Army jawan was killed and two other were injured in what is being described as the first major violation of the four-year-old Indo-Pak ceas-efire across the LoC and the international border on Sunday. The Army, however, refused to describe it as ceasefire violation and maintained that it was a 'hostile fire' from across the LoC. Defence spokesperson Lt Col S D Goswami said: 'I won't comment on the ceasefire violation, but I can confirm that a soldier was killed in 'hostile fire' near Langoor post of the Poonch sector, about 200 km from Jammu.'
