Pak again violates ceasefire in Jammu & Kashmir

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

A soldier of the Border Security Force (BSF) was martyred early Tuesday after Pakistan violated ceasefire yet again in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba sector. The officer told PTI that intermittent firing between the two sides was still underway.

BSF troopers from nearby mounds engaged this fire effectively.During this exchange of fire, one burst from counterpart side, hit a loophole of the mound from where Constable Devender Kumar was engaging the threat.

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.

On Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the valley, including Jammu, on May 19, he said, "Such a kind of incident before the PM's visit is a serious matter but security agencies and J&K police are fully aware of it and requisite steps have been taken".

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