BSF trooper, 3 civilians injured in Pakistani firing on IB

Jammu: A Border Security Force (BSF) trooper and three civilians were injured on Saturday in fresh firing by Pakistan Rangers on the international border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir. "From Akhnoor to R.S. Pura, Pakistan Rangers carried out indiscriminate shelling and firing to target civilian and security facilities. "A BSF trooper sustained injuries in the firing in Pargwal area while three civilians, including a minor girl sustained injuries in Kanachak area of Akhnoor sector," a police officer said. The injured have been shifted to hospital.

"The BSF is effectively retaliating at all these places," he added. Shelling and firing continued from the Pakistani side in Arnia, Hira Nagar, Ramgarh and Samba sectors till last reports came in. More than 10,000 residents of border villages have during the last two days migrated from their villages, leaving behind cattle, agricultural fields and homes. Two security personnel, including an army soldier and a BSF trooper, and two civilians were killed on Friday in similar unprovoked firing on the LoC and the international border by Pakistan, police said. Twenty-four others including two BSF troopers and 22 civilians were also injured.
