A Pakistani soldier was killed Sunday in firing allegedly by Indian troops at the border between the South Asian rivals in disputed Kashmir, Pakistan's military said.
"Pakistan has lodged a strong protest with Indians and demanded an immediate flag meeting," it added.
Indian army spokesman accused Pakistani troops of starting the firing.
In a major incident of ceasefire violation, the Indian and Pakistani armies were engaged in a heavy gunbattle on Sunday along the Line of Control (LoC) in Krishna Ghati in Mendhar area of Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district.
The gunfire duel started after Pakistani troops opened fire on Indian positions in Poonch, about 200 km north of Jammu.
"Pakistani troops opened small arms fire at 9 am. The Indian Army retaliated but soon Pakistanis started firing rockets," a defence spokesperson told IANS.
He said: "The exchange of fire is on."
