The Pakistani troopers targetted the Indian posts on Thursday night after the Indian Army retaliated strongly to the attacks by neighbouring country that injured three Indian soldiers earlier in the day.
No casualties have been reported so far.
According to reports, firing continued overnight in the Poonch sector.
Earlier on Thursday, a civilian in Poonch was also injured in an explosion of mortar shell fired by Pakistani troopers.
As India celebrated it 67th Independence Day on Thursday, Pakistani troopers violated the ceasefire along the LoC twice, leaving three Indian soldiers injured.
The Indian Army on Thursday said the Pakistani troopers opened fire at several Indian posts in the Mendhar sector along the LoC late on Wednesday.
The Pakistani troopers once again fired on Thursday morning about one km away from Mendhar in Balakote sector of Poonch district in Jammu and Kashmir, which left three Indian soldiers injured.
The Indian Army said the Pakistani soldiers used automatic weapons, mortar shells and rockets while firing at Indian positions.
The Indian Army also retaliated the attack in the same manner.
The ceasefire violations by the troopers from the neighbouring country has increased in the recent times.
Earlier on Thursday Prime Minister Manmohan Singh while addressing the nation on Independence Day from the Red Fort in New Delhi, said Pakistan should prevent the use of their territory for anti-India activities to improve relations between the two countries.
The relation between the two countries soured after the killing of five Indian soldiers in an ambush by Pakistani troopers along the LoC in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Aug 6.
Pakistan earlier denied the allegations and said the country's troops did not kill the Indian soldiers in an overnight attack on a patrol party along the LoC.
