Two people were killed and four received grave injuries in fresh ceasefire violation by Pakistan along the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday.

According to reports, the ceasefire violation took place in RS Pura sector along the Line of Control (LoC) and the Border Security Force (BSF) is retaliating effectively.

The shelling comes a day after India reportedly killed three Pakistani Rangers to avenge the death of a BSF trooper who lost his life on Wednesday due to indiscriminate firing from the Pakistani side.

The BSF Head Constable A Suresh was injured in the shelling and later succumbed to his injuries in a hospital. A 14-year-old local girl too died in the unprovoked firing.

The Indian side retaliated and destroyed two mortar locations on the Pakistani side as firing exchanges continued for hours on Thursday.

A miffed Pakistan summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh and accused India of violating ceasefire.

As per the Pakistan Foreign Office, Director General (South Asia and SAARC) Mohammad Faisal summoned Singh and condemned the alleged ceasefire violation by the Indian forces.

The Pakistan Foreign Office had on January 15 too summoned Singh to protest the deaths of four of its soldiers in firing across the Line of Control.
