Condemning the spate of firing exchanges, locals urged both sides to ensure that people along the border live in peace.
"We are civilians and should be allowed to live in peace. Pakistan should live peacefully and allow us to do the same. It is pointless for locals alongside the border areas both in India and Pakistan to bear the brunt of such constant firing. This is injustice and people like us should not suffer," said Haji Bagh Hussain, a villager.
Ties between the nuclear-armed neighbours, who have fought three wars since 1947, were frozen when Pakistan-based militants attacked Mumbai in 2008, killing 166 people.
