Pakistan rangers again violated ceasefire along the International Border (IB) in the RS Pura sector of Jammu district by resorting to small arms fire late on Friday night.

"Small arms bursts are beings fired by Pakistan Rangers in Abdullian village in the Suchetgarh sector in RS Pura," Deputy Commissioner Jammu Simrandeep Singh said.

He said people have been advised to stay indoors and so far no relief camps have been set up and the situation will be monitored for the next 18 hours.

A BSF officer said the jawans were giving befitting reply to Pakistan Rangers.

The latest ceasefire violations came hours after the BSF killed seven Pakistan Rangers and one terrorist in the "retaliatory fire" in the Kathua sector on the international border.

The Indian border guarding force launched an aggressive offensive against the Pakistani firing, BSF said in a release, adding seven Rangers and a terrorist were shot dead in the retaliatory firing.

Meanwhile, all schools in the region have been directed to remain closed until further notice.
