Pakistan carried out cease fire at BSF posts of Arnia area of RS Pura from 1 am to 5 am on Sunday. However, BSF retaliated and fortunately there was no casualty. Talking about the issue,  NCP spokesperson Majid Memon said, “Pakistan must make their stand clear whether they want friendship or not.” On last Friday, BSF and Pakistan Rangers  made a commitment to uphold peace and tranquility on the border and extended all cooperation to each other in dealing with emergent incidents in a proactive and positive manner.

Last week, Pakistan rangers opened cease fire against Indian Jawans at Arnia area in RS Pura. Cease fire continued for the third time at international border of Jammu district, a day after Narendra Modi said Pak is waging a “Proxy war” at inauguration speech at Leh and Kargil.
