JAMMU,

INTERMITTENT firing and shelling by Pakistani troops was reported in Akhnoor sector of Jammu and Kashmir in the early hours on Monday, a senior BSF officer said.
“The limited firing targeting at least four border outposts was reported in Akhnoor sector which was responded accordingly,” the officer said.


However, there was no report of any ceasefire violation after 0215 hours. He said calm is prevailing but the situation continues to remain tense.


On Sunday, two BSF personnel including an officer were killed and 14 persons, mostly civilians, were injured in heavy firing and shelling by Pakistan in Akhnoor, Kanachak and Khour sectors.


The violation came nearly a week after the director generals of military operations (DGMOs) of both countries agreed to implement the ceasefire pact of 2003 in “letter and spirit”.
