According to reports, an Indian Army Junior Commissioned Officer was killed in the firing.
"The Army is ascertaining if it was a ceasefire violation or an attack by terrorists or infiltrators," reported CNN-IBN.
Meanwhile, the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service was suspended for Monday after the firing incident.
Reacting sharply to the recent increase in the number of ceasefire violations along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday said he was disappointed with Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif
"Let me say that I am disappointed, because in the New York meeting there was a general agreement on both the sides that peace and tranquillity should be maintained on the border, on the Line of Control as well as on the international border and this has not happened. It has come to me as a big disappointment," Singh told reporters while returning from the Beijing to India.
Singh said he hopes that Sharif will recognise that this is a development which is not good for either of the two countries.
"We had agreed at that meeting that the ceasefire which was made effective in 2003, if it has held ground for 10 years, it could be made to hold ground later on also. The fact that this is not happening, is something which is really a matter of disappointment.
"I sincerely hope that at this late hour Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will recognise that this is a development which is not good for either of the two countries," the PM said.
