Pakistan violates ceasefire at 3 places in Jammu


: Pakistan Rangers resorted to shelling and firing on the Border (IB) in RS Pura, Suchetgarh and Hira Nagar sectors in Jammu and during the night, officials said on Monday.

When the entire country was celebrating Diwali — the Festival of Lights, Pakistan Rangers resorted to shelling and firing at civilian and facilities in three sectors of the IB in the Jammu region, police said.

“Pakistan troops fired mortars and used automatic weapons to target civilian and Border Security Force (BSF) facilities in R.S.Pura, Suchetgarh and Hira Nagar sectors during the night.”

“Pakistan shelling was retaliated by the BSF.”

“Firing exchanges stopped around midnight”, the police said.

Residents of border villages close to the IB celebrated a subdued Diwali, away from home. Pakistan troops have been indiscriminately targeting their homes, cattle and crops.

Authorities have set up temporary accommodations — in educational institutions, rural development department buildings and community halls — for hundreds of border residents in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts.
