It was a night long shelling from across the border at Jammu International Border Kathua to Akhnoor sectors.
Meanwhile, as a precautionary measure, all schools within five kms of the border are closed.
The incidents of cross border firing and shelling have been reported from almost the entire Indo-Pak International Border along the state, since Tuesday morning.
Indian troops are also responding with full force to Pakistan’s firing.
Meanwhile Home Minister Rajnath Singh has warned Pakistan over the repeated ceasefire violations. He said Indian troops won’t fire first but will respond if fired upon.
The Home Minister clearly said that India’s neighbour does not want peace, and its motives need to be evaluated.
The administration has deployed police forces in border areas to help those affected, reach safety. Relief camps have been set up, to ensure those displaced by Pakistan’s ceasefire violations face minimum hardship. J&K Chief Minsiter Mehbooba Mufti met those affected and termed their predicament as unfortunate.
Pakistan’s ceasefire violations in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy Ramzan period have been incessant. Several Pakistan posts and bunkers have been blown up by Indian troops in recent days. But Pakistan has still been directing gunfire and mortar in Arnia, RS Pura sectors apart from villages close to the boundary. Earlier Rajnath Singh warned Pakistan over the repeated ceasefire violations and said Indian troops won’t fire first but they will respond, if fired upon.
