“Heavy firing exchanges between the BSF (Border Security Force) and Pakistan Rangers have been taking place since early morning,” a police officer said.

The Abdullian, Tubewell number five, Kathmariana, Korotana and Sangral BSF posts in R.S.Pura area are being targeted.

“No casualty has been reported on our side so far,” the officer added.

On Wednesday, a woman was killed and four other people – two troopers and two civilians – were injured in indiscriminate shelling by Pakistan Rangers in Akhnoor sector of the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir.

Frightened villagers living close to the International Border showed journalists bullet marks and gaping holes in their homes made by Pakistan shelling and firing.

Pakistan shelling has occurred after Indian and Pakistan prime ministers issued a joint statement pledging themselves to building peace between the two countries.
