ceasefire violation

Pakistani Rangers on Saturday violated the ceasefire by resorting to brief firing along the International Border in Jammu district, forcing BSF troops to retaliate.

"The Pakistani troops resorted to few rounds of firing on forward Border Out Posts (BoPs) along IB in Arnia belt in Jammu district today," a senior BSF official said.

BSF troops retaliated briefly, he said, adding, there was no injury to anyone in the firing.

Earlier, Pakistani Rangers had violated ceasefire on Wednesday by resorting to brief small arms firing on Border Out Posts (BoPS) along IB in Jammu and Samba sectors.

As many as 11 people have been killed and over 90 others injured in shelling and firing by Pakistani troops during first fortnight of October, triggering migration of over 32,000 people from border areas of Jammu, Kathua, and Samba districts.
