Pakistan troops also violated ceasefire on the LoC by resorting to firing in Sunderbani sector of Rajouri district.”Pakistan troops have violated ceasefire and resorted to firing along LoC in Sunderbani sector today,” a senior Army officer said.Troops guarding the border retaliated, he added.

Yesterday, an Assistant Sub-Inspector of BSF was injured when a shell fired by Pakistani Rangers exploded near him during overnight ceasefire violation in RS Pura sector along the International Border in Jammu.

As many as 16 people mostly women have been injured in the cross-border firing in the RS Pura sector in past two days. 8 civilians were injured shelling in R S Pura and Arnia on October 25.

Jammu Deputy Commissioner Simrandeep Singh said the government has issued an advisory and all the educational institutions near the International Border have been closed in the wake of the firing from across the border.

Border residents are migrating to safer locations in the wake of the heavy firing, Singh said. A six-year-old boy and a BSF Jawan were killed in the cross border shelling in the RS Pura sector on October 24.Over 55 ceasefire violations have taken place since surgical strikes by Indian Army against terror launch pads in PoK on September 29.

During the search operation, Raj was found roaming in suspicious circumstances in Jerda village close to the  International Border (IB) and tried to escape on observing the  movement of the police party, the SSP said. “Police chased him and later he was arrested,” he said.

Two Pakistani SIM cards, one map showing deployment of forces, two Indian made mobile phones and one memory card besides Rs 1711 were recovered from his possession, the SSP said. Meanwhile, security forces have also arrested two Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists from Baramulla area and recovered one AK-47 and one pistol from them.

Earlier on Friday night, Pakistan rangers again violated ceasefire along the International Border (IB) in the RS Pura sector of Jammu district by resorting to small arms. “Small arms bursts are beings fired by Pakistan Rangers in Abdullian village in the Suchetgarh sector in RS Pura,” Deputy  Commissioner Jammu Simrandeep Singh said.

He said people have been advised to stay indoors and so far no relief camps have been set up and the situation will be monitored for the next 18 hours. A BSF officer said the jawans were giving befitting reply to Pakistan Rangers.

The latest ceasefire violations came hours after the BSF  claimed to have killed seven Pakistan Rangers and one  terrorist in the “retaliatory fire” in the Kathua sector on  the international border.  Pakistan Rangers, the border force of Pakistan, resorted to sniper attacks at Indian posts at Hira Nagar in Kathua at around 9.35 AM, BSF said.

The Indian border guarding force launched an aggressive offensive against the Pakistani firing, BSF said in a release,  adding seven Rangers and a terrorist were shot dead in the retaliatory firing.

Seeking to suggest that the killings had been corroborated by Pakistani media, the BSF said “source input” claimed that a media organisation in that country was running a news item about death of five Rangers.

The strong response by BSF came after one of Constables Gurnam Singh was injured in a sniper fire attack by Pakistani Rangers this morning in the same area.Singh, whose condition is considered to be critical, was evacuated with the cover fire to Government Medical College in Jammu.

The firing from Pakistan was effectively retaliated and that has claimed the casualties of Pakistani forces, the release said.
