Jammu: In yet another cross firing incident, Indian and Pakistani troops today fired mortar shells on each other’s border outposts at several places in Jammu and Kashmir’s Arnia sector.
The mortar firing from across the border started around 0700 hours in Arnia sector of Jammu and was still continuing when last reports were received, a senior Border Security Force official said.
“Three border outposts are under fire from the Pakistani Rangers and the personnel deployed there are also retaliating to silence the Pakistani guns,” the official said.
“However, there was no immediate report of any casualty in the shelling,” he said.
Last night, Pakistani troops fired small arms and mortars, targeting Narayanpur area of Ramgarh sector in Samba district, hours after a meeting with the BSF to stop firing.
Two BSF soldiers were killed in the latest round of cross border firing along the IB in Jammu region since May 15.
Four civilians were also killed and 11 others injured on Friday in the Jammu area due to the firing.
