Pakistan violates truce pact in Arnia sector

Tribune News Service
Jammu, October 17

The Pakistan Rangers on Wednesday violated the truce agreement by opening small arms fire on a forward post of the Border Security Force (BSF) in the Arnia sector of Jammu district.

Intelligence sources said the Pakistan Rangers resorted to ceasefire violation by opening small arms fire on the Pittal Post in Arnia sector at 1.15 pm. The BSF personnel of the 62 Battalion retaliated in equal and calibrated measure.

Sources said the exchange of fire lasted for a few minutes. “There was no loss of life or injuries on the Indian side,” sources said.

They said the extent of damage on the other side was not known but there was a possibility that the Pakistan side might have suffered a casualty.

BSF officers, however, remained tight-lipped over the incident.
