In yet another ceasefire violation, Pakistani troops resorted to firing and heavy mortar shelling in Samba and Hiranagar sectors along International Border in Jammu and Kashmir last night. One BSF Jawan was injured in the cross-border shelling.
BSF sources told that Pakistani troops started firing and shelling targeting Indian positions and civilian areas in Samba and adjoining Hiranagar sector around 8 PM last night.
This prompted BSF personnel to retaliate effectively. Intermittent exchange of fire at some places continued till this morning.
Around half a dozen border outposts and an equal number of villages have been affected by the shelling.
