Heavy exchange of gunfire are on for the last 24 hours. 

In the wake of escalated tension and continuing shelling, the border people are asked not to venture out of their houses and take all precautionary measures. Pakistani shellings in civilian areas have once again created panic among the border people. 

A heavy volley of mortar shells were also fired in Sai, Devigarh and Sohagpur area in Arnia sub sector.
