Jammu: Taking a tough stance over continued firing, ceasefire violations and infiltration bids from across the International Border, Border Security Force Wednesday warned Pakistan Rangers of "counter-action".

BSF also lodged a strong protest over the fifth incident of firing and infiltration bid on International Border at Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir.

"A flag meeting was held with Pakistani rangers in Ramgarh forward belt along IB today in connection with yesterday's cross-border firing and infiltration bid. We registered a strong protest with them," Deputy Inspector General BSF Frontier Jammu, G S Sagwan said.

A commandant level meeting was held at Ramgarh forward Border Out Post (BOP) for an hour today.

"We have told them there would always be a counter-action and counter-firing, if such incidents recur in future," he said.

Blaming Pakistani Rangers for supporting infiltration bid, he said, "BSF officers have told their counterparts to stop infiltration bids and cross-border firing, if they want us not to open firing in such a situation."

The BSF DIG further said that Pakistani side showed their ignorance to the incidents and denied their involvement as they have doing it in the past. "But we have made it clear to them, if such incidents are repeated, we will be forced to open fire and take counter-measures," he said.
