The agreement between military commanders of India and Pakistan to maintain a ceasefire along the IB was breached within six weeks after Pakistani Rangers fired from across the border in the Samba sector of Jammu & Kashmir on Monday.

A senior BSF official said initial information showed that these were “small-scale violations.” The agreement to maintain calm along the border on February 25 was supposed to be a catalyst in unfreezing India-Pakistan ties. It also led to a meeting between Indus Water Commissioners after a gap of over a year. However, Pakistan took a step back when it allowed and then cancelled plans to import cotton and sugar from India.
