JAMMU: Pakistan Rangers again on Thursday resorted to unprovoked firing at Indian positions on the international border in Jammu and Kashmir, an official said. "Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing using small arms in the Pargwal area of the Jammu district," a police officer said. The officer said three BSF outposts were affected due to the firing. "Pakistan firing started at 11.50pm yesterday (Wednesday) night for a brief period, but today (Thursday) morning at 4am, Pakistan Rangers started firing again which continued till 5.55am," the officer said. The Border Security Force (BSF) troopers gave befitting reply, he added. These two ceasefire violations occurred hours after the BSF and Pakistan Rangers held a battalion commander level flag meeting in the same border area to defuse tensions between the two sides.
