The Pakistan Rangers resorted to heavy shelling and use of small arm fire in RS Pura sector. “Fire was mainly concentrated in RS Pura sector, heavy firing up to 11.30 PM. Intermittent fire in Arnia also”, he said. He said the BSF was giving a “befitting reply”, to the Pakistani fire.
Intermittent firing was going on in several areas of RS Pura sector, with BSF “responding well” to the Pakistani fire.
Deputy Commissioner (DC) Jammu, Simrandeep Singh said Pakistani posts also targeted civilian areas including Sai Kalan, Bure Jaal, Treva and Arnia.
“Shelling opened up in Sai Kalan also, Arnia also came under shelling from 0130 hours. People were inside their houses, so no human casualty,” Singh said.
Singh said though the government has issued an advisory and all the educational institutions near the international border have been closed in the wake of the firing from across the border, people were migrating to safer locations.
“In the wake of the heavy firing border residents are migrating to safer locations, whenever there is lull, they leave their houses to shift to either safe camps or to their relatives houses at safer locations”, Singh said.
We should strongly respond to such unprovoked firing. Our response should be so lethal that they should never even think of such unprovoked firing again.
