Jammu: Hours before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Katra, Pakistani troops on Tuesday resorted to ceasefire violation along the International Border (IB) in Sabma district of Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistani troops fired 4-5 rounds on a forward post in Samba sector early this morning, a senior BSF officer said.
BSF troops, guarding the borderline, retaliated, he said, adding there was no loss of life or injury to anyone.
BSF troops also picked up suspicious movement near a forward area in Samba sector and resorted to firing thereby forcing the person to flee, he said.
The Prime Minister has arrived at Mata Vaishno Devi University complex where he is scheduled to inaugurate a super speciality hospital, a sports stadium and take part in the convocation after which he is going to address a public meeting today.
