Poonch: A shelter shed of the Indian Army camp was damaged after a shell fell on the premises of Poonch brigade headquarters in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday morning. The shell is believed to have come from across the Line of Control, an official said.

An administration team of army experts had reached the spot and launched a probe into the matter.

According to sources, the blast took place at an unmanned shelter in the camp inside the 3rd brigade headquarters at Moti Mahal in the border district at around 10.45 am.

While officials said that they were investigating the matter, a senior official said it was an abandoned tin shed of no significance.

Following the incident, the administration ordered a shutdown of educational institutions falling in the border area in close proximity to the Poonch brigade headquarters.
