Pakistani troops violate ceasefire again at Hiranagar sector of Jammu

In a bid to help militants’ infiltration, Pakistani forces have repeatedly fired at the Indian border outposts this year, resulting in casualties and displacement of many villagers.

On January 3, two Army jawans and a woman were killed while 11 people were injured in firing by Pakistani troops.

On New Year eve, Pakistani firing had left two persons dead, including a BSF jawan, and nine injured.

The renewed ceasefire violations come barely two months after the last major escalation that left 13 people dead and displaced 32,000 border residents in August and October.
