India and Pakistan armies on Saturday exchanged heavy fire and shelling along the international border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir.
An official said Pakistani Rangers targeted Indian positions, killing livestock and damaging several properties.
The rangers resorted to shelling and firing in Arnia sub-sector of Jammu district using mortars, automatics and small arms around midnight, a police official said.
They targeted Sai, Treva and Jabowal forward posts of the Border Security Force (BSF).
“Indian troops retaliated strongly after which the firing exchanges stopped,” the official said.
Two residential houses, a temple and three cattle sheds were damaged in the indiscriminate shelling.
