Jammu: One BSF officer was killed after Pakistani troops resorted to mortar shelling along the LoC in J&K's Samba district on Sunday.

According to reports, troops guarding Pakistani borders opened fire in Samba district of J&K along the international border (IB), a day after BSF and Pakistan rangers agreed to uphold the sanctity of ceasefire during the DG-level talks.

"Pakistan rangers fired three rounds early today (Sunday) morning using small weapons. The fire was aimed at a forward border out post (BoP) in Samba," a BSF official said.

He, however, said that the BSF did not retaliate to the fire from across the border.
