Pakistan Violates Ceasefire Again


Jammu: Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire by firing along the International Border (IB) in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir overnight, officials said.

Three to four rounds were fired along the IB in forward area of Samba sector during the intervening night, a senior BSF officer said today. BSF troops guarding the borderline fired illumination rounds to track suspicious movement, BSF officials said.

There was no casualty or injury to anyone in the cross border firing, he said, adding troops are keeping a close watch on the movement along the border.

BSF and Pak Rangers held two high-level meetings last fortnight to ensure truce on the border during the harvesting season on both sides of the border.
