Pakistani troops fired mortar bombs, rockets and automatic weapons on border posts and civilian areas along the International Border in Jammu and Samba districts, resulting in heavy exchanges till the wee hours on Thursday.

“There was shelling of mortar bombs, rockets and firing by automatic weapons on border outposts (BoPs) in Nikki Tawi areas of Jammu district and Ramgarh belts of Samba district since last night,” BSF officials said on Thursday.

In the biggest-ever provocation close on heels of visit of Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde to Indo-Pak border, Pakistani troops on Tuesday resorted to night-long heavy shelling and firing at over 50 border outposts along international border (IB) in which one BSF Head Constable was killed and seven other security personnel injured.

In the latest round, they fired 82 mm mortar shells and also rockets, apart from Light Machine Guns (LGMs) in civilian areas as well.

The BSF troops guarding the borderline retaliated, resulting in heavy exchanges, which continued 0230 hours on Thursday, officials said.

There was no loss of life or injury to anyone in the shelling and firing, they said.

Due to shelling, panic-stricken villagers have fled their homes to safety.

THe solution to Jammu and Kashmir dispute will never be solved if India and Pakistan claims the area belongs to them entirely. The status should be same as before partition of India. British carved out Pakistan in blood. The bloodshed has not stopped since then. It is better to close the wound rather than bandaid solution. It will never work.

During the Chinese Aggression, President S. Radhakrishnan stated in the Parliament that we are a credulous nation, which PM, Pt Nehru admitted. That seems more apt now for the present leadership at the centre. AB Vajpayee was bold during Kargil war but the present leadership is lacking in bold decisions
