Jammu, May 17

Pakistan Rangers opened fire and lobbed mortars at over 15 Border Out Posts and some civilian areas along the International Border (IB) in Samba and Kathua districts overnight, leaving a BSF jawan injured, an official said on Thursday.

BSF troops guarding the borderline retaliated and the exchange of fire was going on when reports last came in, a senior BSF officer told PTI.

“Pakistan Rangers violated the ceasefire and resorted to heavy and unprovoked mortar shelling and firing along the IB on 10 to 15 BoPs in Samba and Kathua districts since Wednesday night,” the officer said.

In the exchanges, a BSF jawan suffered injuries and had been hospitalised, the officer said. PTI
