Jammu, August 15 (Agency) 

 

Pakistani Rangers opened unprovoked fire in Hira Nagar sector of the international border Wednesday on India's 66th Independence Day, according to sources in the Border Security Force (BSF).

 

BSF sources said the Pakistani Rangers opened fire at Pansera post close to the zero line on the international border about 65 km south west of Jammu. The firing lasted for over half an hour.

 

The Indian side did not retaliate, the sources said.

 

Pakistani Rangers have been firing at Indian posts almost regularly for the past one week. This was the sixth such incident in the past week, the sources said.

 

The firing was also a violation of a ceasefire that the Indian and Pakistani governments had agreed to adhere to in November 2003.

 

India shares a 198-km international border in Jammu region with Pakistan.
