Jammu:┬áPakistani troopers on Tuesday violated the bilateral ceasefire on the international border in Jammu and Kashmir’s Akhnoor sector, triggering clashes with the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) that killed a Pakistani Ranger.

BSF sources said Pakistan Rangers resorted to “unprovoked ceasefire violation” targeting Indian positions.

“BSF has retaliated strongly and effectively. A Pakistan Ranger was killed and five were injured in the retaliatory firing by our troops,” official sources said.

Tuesday’s violation by Pakistan came on a day the Indian Air Force carried out strikes across the Line of Control (LoC) targeting terror camps in Balakote.
