However, the Indian positions retaliated effectively and strongly and the firing exchanges between the two sides continued for almost three hours.

A 22-year-old civilian was killed in firing by Pakistani forces along the line of control (LoC) in Poonch district on May 10.

Director General BSF, K K Sharma, while paying homage to the deceased jawan, said BSF has the history of bravery and this fearless act has once again proved that border men are always ready to sacrifice their life, if comes to the nation security. The crossfire incidents along the IB over the past three months have reduced considerably after the intense border confrontations in January and February, which led to many casualties.

Following the searches, residents of villages situated close to the border have restricted their outdoor movement.
