JAMMU: Border escalation is once again happening. In this regard, the armies of India and Pakistan traded heavy fire along the international border (IB) in Jammu and Samba districts late Sunday, hours after agreeing to maintain peace on the border. Top officials of Border Security Force (BSF) and its Pakistani Rangers had a telephonic conversation on Sunday to end the latest border flare up, officials said, after both sides suffered loss of lives and machinery in the heavy exchange of fire along the border in Jammu last week.

An official said that the Pakistani Army resorted to “unprovoked” firing at the Border Security Force outposts in Arnia, Ramgarh and Chamliyal areas of Jammu and Kashmir late on Sunday. "The firing started at 10 p.m. The BSF retaliated effectively. No casualty or damage was caused on our side," he said. Pakistani rangers and BSF officials on Sunday had agreed to maintain peace and tranquility on the border.
