Pakistan violates ceasefire in Jammu

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

Jammu: Pakistan rangers on Saturday violated ceasefire along the international border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir targeting Indian positions, killing livestock and damaging several properties.

The rangers resorted to shelling and firing in Arnia sub-sector of Jammu district using mortars, automatics and small arms, a police official said.

They targeted Sai, Treva and Jabowal forward posts of the Border Security Force (BSF). “Indian troops retaliated strongly after which the firing exchanges stopped,” the official said.

Two residential houses, a temple and three cattle sheds were damaged in the indiscriminate shelling by Pakistan. “Three cattle perished and three were injured,” he said.

A BSF trooper was killed and a civilian injured on Friday in ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the same area of the IB.
