Pakistani troops also fired at 12 forward posts of the Border Security Force in Kanachak, Pargwal and R.S.Pura areas of the International Border in Jammu district.

“They used mortars, automatics and small arms. The BSF retaliated using same caliber weapons. Heavy shelling and firing exchanges are underway in the area,” he said.

BSF personnel noticed suspicious movements near a border outpost in Kanachak area during the night and fired to “thwart any possible infiltration attempt after which it was quiet till morning”.

“But at 6.05 a.m., Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing at the BSF border outpost and later used mortar shells to target civilian areas and BSF border outposts,” he added.
