With no let up in the cross-border firing defence minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday warned Pakistan that it would have to pay a heavy price for its adventurism.

“If Pakistan persists with this adventurism, our forces will make the cost of this adventurism unaffordable for it,” Jaitley said adding that Pakistan should stop firing along the border if it wanted peace.

Jaitley also lauded the Indian forces saying they were doing a commendable job in the face of acts of aggression by Pakistan.

The latest episode of ceasefire violation by Pakistan has so far left eight people dead and 80 others, including nine security men, injured. More than 30,000 people have been displaced so far.

Take a look at the images of human suffering along the 192-km international border showing how Pakistan's incessant firing has shattered lives and livelihoods:
