A senior BSF officer said that the Pakistan Rangers on Monday have violated the ceasefire by opening fire along the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba district.

A BSF spokesperson said, "this is the first-ever ceasefire violation by Pakistan along the IB after the two countries signed a fresh agreement to maintain calm along the border on February 25 this year."

Inspector General of BSF, Jammu frontier, N S Jamwal, told, “Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing along IB at 0615 hours in Ramgarh sector."

There was genuinely no casualty in the firing.

The BSF spokesperson said, "Pakistani troops opened unprovoked firing on a patrolling party ahead of the fencing."

In the February agreement, India and Pakistan had agreed to strictly observe all agreements on a ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) and other sectors.

Though In 2003, the two countries had earlier signed a ceasefire agreement.

But it was hardly followed in letter and spirit with more violations than the observance of the pact.
