Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing along the international border in Jammu’s Arnia sector around midnight.
Pakistan once again violated ceasefire along the international border in Jammu’s Arnia sector. Heavy firing, which continued overnight, came to an end around 6.30 am.
During the 6-hour-long intermittent firing, Pakistan Rangers used mortar shells. However, no loss of life has been reported.
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 by the indiscriminate shelling by Pakistan. “Three cattle perished and three were injured,” he said.
Pakistan Rangers had resorted to unprovoked firing at Indian positions in Arnia sub-sector on Friday morning as well, in which a BSF soldier was killed.
The martyred soldier was identified as Ct Brijendra Bahadur Singh, a native of Ballia district in Uttar Pradesh.
