In Jammu and Kashmir, the Pakistan Rangers violated the ceasefire by resorting to unprovoked firing along the International Border in R S Pura area of Arnia sector in Jammu division Yesterday. Akashvani Correspondent reports that the firing started at around 8 PM and was effectively retaliated by the alert BSF troops.
The residents and people moved to safer locations and a large number of people living in villages near zero line were seen moving towards areas of R S Pura, Bishnah and Jammu. The local administration opened schools and Panchayat Ghars as shelters for them. This is the first major incident of ceasefire violation after the February 2021 pact between the Indian troops and the Pakistan Army. Notably, this is the second ceasefire incident this month in the same area. Earlier, on October 17 two BSF jawans were injured in firing by Pakistan Rangers.
