Jammu: Violating the ceasefire again, Pakistani troops targeted several Indian positions in Naushera sector of Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistani Army started "unprovoked" firing on Indian positions at 9:25 last night and the firing lasted till 11:45 PM, a defence spokesman said today.

"Our troops effectively retaliated to the unprovoked firing from across the border," the spokesman said.

He said no loss of life or injury was reported from the Indian side when the reports last came in.

Meanwhile, the Pakistani side has refused to accept sweets from BSF on the occasion of Eid on Wagah border, Atari.

BSF Deputy Inspector General (DIG), Amritsar sector, M.F. Farooqui said, "No exchange of sweets took place between both sides today (Saturday) on Eid."

"This time, the matter was discussed but we did not get any positive response from that (Pakistan) side. We also did not pursue the matter," he said.

However, on March 23 this year, the Pakistan side offered sweets to their Indian counterparts on the occasion of Pakistan Day.

There has seen a sudden spurt of ceasefire violations from across the border this month.

A woman was killed and six others, including two BSF jawans, were injured on July 15 in firing and mortar shelling in Jammu district by Pakistan Rangers.

On July 9, Pakistani troops had fired at a forward border post in North Kashmir killing a BSF jawan.

On July 5, a BSF jawan was killed in Pakistani firing along LoC in Nougam sector in Kashmir Valley.
