J&K: 5 killed, 40 injured in unprovoked firing by Pakistan
The Pakistani troops on Wednesday continued heavy shelling killing five person and injuring 40 other in Jammu and Kashmir.
All schools close to the international border have been closed as a precautionary measure.
The Pakistani side is carrying out indiscriminate shelling and firing in Arnia, R.S.Pura and Ramgarh sectors, the officer said. It started around 7 p.m. on Monday in Arnia and later extended to the two other sectors.
The ceasefire violation comes days after Pakistani forces were forced to "plead for ceasefire" after Indian troops retaliated forcefully to heavy shelling and firing from across the border.
On Sunday, Pakistan Rangers called up the BSF unit in Jammu and requested for a ceasefire, a senior officer of the BSF said.
The BSF also released a 19-second thermal-imagery footage, showing the destruction of a Pakistani picket across the border, in retaliation to the unprovoked firing and shelling along the International Border.
