Sources from the Defence Ministry told The Quint that Bofors guns were used to shell Pakistani army posts. At two such posts were destroyed in heavy shelling, they added.
The artillery units on the ground used fire control radars that accurately pick up the precise locations of military activity across the LoC, the sources informed The Quint. Once the locations and their coordinates were identified, the Bofors guns were used.
