A day after a woman was killed and two BSF men were injured in a firing along LoC, Indian authorities Thursday accused Pakistani Rangers of indulging in heavy firing and mortar shelling on five border outposts and some villages in Jammu district which left four persons injured.

The fresh firing happened a day after a woman was killed in the ceasefire violations prompting India to lodge protest with Pakistan.

“Pakistani Rangers resorted to small arms firing and mortar shelling along IB in R S Pura sector of Jammu district since 0115 hours,” a BSF officer said.

Five border outposts (BoPs) were targeted leaving four persons injured in Brewa village, the officer said.

There have been nine ceasefire violations during July.

Yesterday, Pakistan Rangers “violated the ceasefire” twice, indulging in firing and mortar shelling in the Akhnoor sector, killing a 42-year-old woman, identified as Poli Devi.
