Jammu [India], Oct. 22 (ANI): Pakistan rangers continued to violated ceasefire along the International Border in the RS Pura sector of Jammu district by resorting to small arms fire late last night.

Deputy Commissioner Jammu Simrandeep Singh said that people have been advised to stay indoors and the situation is being monitored by the authorities.

A BSF officer said that jawans are giving befitting reply to Pakistan Rangers.

The latest ceasefire violations comes hours after the BSF killed seven Pakistan Rangers and one terrorist in the retaliatory fire in the Kathua sector along international border in Jammu and Kashmir.
