Again another ceasefire violation and at least nine civilians were injured in heavy firing and mortar shelling by Pakistan along the International Border in Jammu district on Monday, said a Border Security Force spokesperson.

However, in this month it is 17th time the ceasefire violation occur. Pakistan Rangers targeted 40 Border Out Posts and 25 border hamlets by resorting to heavy mortar shelling and firing along the International Border in Jammu and Samba districts of Jammu and Kashmi

BSF troops gave a befitting reply to four ceasefire violations by Pakistan, resulting in exchanges, still continuing in some areas.

Spokesperson said, "As many as 40 BSF BoPs were affected by the firing from Pakistan side", adding that firing and shelling was targeted on areas along IB in Arnia, RS Pura, Kanachak and Pargwal sub-sectors along IB in Jammu and Samba districts.

Also, he revealed the further details, he said almost all the BSF posts in Kanachak and Pargwal were targeted by the Pakistan Rangers.

BSF posts in Arnia and RS Pura sub-sectors were also targeted by the enemy, he said.

"BSF troops at all the places gave a strong and befitting reply to firing from Pak", the spokesman said, adding that firing in some places, particularly Pargwal, is still on. There is no loss of life or damage to BSF".

Over 1000 people have been accommodated in camps overnight.

Since October 01, this was the 17th ceasefire violation along the Indo-Pak border in Jammu and Kashmir and in the fire, six persons have been killed and 50 others including BSF jawan injured in Pakistani shelling and firing along LoC and IB in Jammu and Poonch districts in the ceasefire violations this month.

The Indian government said its forces were responding to the "provocations" only and the firing was not conducive to normalizing relations between the two countries.

Arun Jaitley, the Defence Minister said that defence forces and paramilitary forces were "fully ready and are responding to each of their (Pakistan's) provocations".

He said in New Delhi that the environment being created by Pakistan will not help in normalizing relationship between the two countries.

Rajnath Singh, the Home Minister in New Delhi said that Pakistan "should understand the reality that times have changed in India". He said that he had asked BSF director general DK Pathak to rush to the border areas where incidents of ceasefire violations had been reported.

Moreover, Pakistan has, in turn, lodged "a strong protest" with the Indian government over "unprovoked firing" by India and alleged that violation of the ceasefire by Indian security forces had led to the deaths of four civilians.

The Indian Army guards the LoC while paramilitary BSF guards the international border in Jammu and Kashmir.
