After almost two months of peace along the LoC, Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire Friday, targeting an Indian army posts in Jammu district and sparking off an exchange of fire for about 25 minutes, a defence official said.
BJP`s Rajnath Singh slammed PM Manmohan Singh for engaging Pakistan saying India should lower status of diplomatic relations with Pak in light of recent ceasefire violations by it.
A BSF jawan, injured in firing from across the Indo-Pak border in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir, was flown in an air ambulance to New Delhi for specialised treatment, BSF officials said.
India made it clear that the issue has to be dealt with bilaterally and there was no scope of any third party involvement in the case Of LoC violations.
