Heavy shelling in Jammu region, border tense

Mukhtar Ahmad in Srinagar

An ambush by Pakistani rangers in the Samba sector, which left three paramilitary soldiers dead, triggered a heavy exchange of fire across the International Border in Jammu region on Sunday.

Defence sources said Pakistani troops ambushed a Border Security Force patrol at Gallar village on the border in Samba sector killing three BSF jawans and injuring four others.

Sources said the Indian security forces retaliated by targeting Pakistani posts and managed to destroy three bunkers on the other side of the border.

As guns boomed from both sides, panic gripped the civilian population and villagers fled their homes.

Sources in the Indian Army said Pakistani posts in Kerni and Rajarani sector in Poonch district were shelled killing over 20 Pakistani soldiers.

Meanwhile, the Rashtriya Rifles on Sunday gunned down two top militants of frontline Lashkar-e-Tayiba group, including the north Kashmir divisional commander, Saifullah.
