Jammu: Pakistan Rangers on Sunday fired at Indian positions on the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir, police said.

"Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing at BSF (Border Security Force) outposts in Kotranka area of RS Pura sector," a police officer said.

The firing began at 1.30 am. The BSF retaliated effectively.

"Intermittent firing exchanges continued in the area till 2.30 am."

The officer said no casualty or damage has been reported from the Indian side.

The Jammu and Kashmir police has been put on high alert following incessant ceasefire violations in the state by Pakistan.

Pakistan troops have violated the bilateral ceasefire agreement over a dozen times during the last seven days on the border, causing panic among thousands of villagers in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts.

These border residents have been forced to abandon their homes and agricultural fields for fear of life.

There have been three incidents of sniper attacks by Pakistani troops along the LoC in July. An Army jawan was killed in Poonch and two BSF jawans were killed in similar incidents along the LoC in Kashmir Valley.

There have been 18 ceasefire violations along the Indo-Pak border in July in which four persons, including three jawans, were killed and 14 others injured.
