Srinagar: In yet another ceasefire violation along the Indo-Pak border, Pakistan Army rangers on Wednesday fired at Indian posts in Samba sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Border Security (BSF) retaliated with equal calibre weapons. Fortunately, there was no loss of life or injury to anyone in the firing.

The latest ceasefire violation incident comes just days after the Pakistan Army fired at Indian positions along the Line of Control (LoC) in J&K's Poonch district.

Last week, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley during his two-day visit to J&K had said that the firing from across the border must stop as the ceasefire is in itself "a Confidence Building Measure".

"Talks and aggression can't go together. For the situation to normalise, it is important for the ceasefire violations to stop," he said. Ruling out any political motive behind his trip, Jaitley said, that he "came here to review security, I am quite optimistic about the situation here", he told reporters at a press conference held after he visited the LoC.
