Samba (Jammu and Kashmir), Dec 22 (ANI): The Border Security Force (BSF) hindered major infiltration bids by militants to enter Indian territory on Tuesday as Pakistani troops fired at two forward posts in the Samba sector.
Firing began on Monday night from the Pakistani side. The BSF retaliated after Pakistani troops opened fire at the Kandral border outpost.
This is the fifth case of ceasefire violation within a week.
The officials posted at the site claimed that a BSF patrol party noticed some movement of militants at two posts - S M Pur and S M Pur-one - in Ramgarh sub sector of Samba and challenged the militants.
Inspector General (IG) of BSF, Jammu frontier, A K Sarolia said a red alert has been sounded across the region and patrolling has been intensified.
The militants did not succeed in infiltrating into Jammu and Kashmir added the BSF IG.
In a pre-dawn attack on Sunday, border outposts at Londi and Bobiya were targeted and at a flag meeting held, India decided to lodge its protest against ceasefire violation.
A BSF jawan was killed on Saturday, while two others were injured in the cross border firing that took place at the Kranti post near the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch. (ANI)
