Pakistan violates ceasefire: BSF Jawan killed, several others injured

Jammu: Four civilians and a BSF jawan were killed while 12 others were injured as Pakistan Rangers heavily shelled villages and Border out Posts (BoPs) in Jammu early on Friday, officials said.

News Agency reported that the Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in the RS Pura.

A total of 4 civilians were injured in the overnight firing as mortars were hurled from the Pakistan side at villages in the border area which prompted India to retaliate.

The incidents of unprovoked firing and attempts to infiltrate the IB have increased in the last few days even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to reach Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow as part of an official visit.
