Despite facing uncertain future Pakistan is bent upon provoking Indian reaction by escalating the border tension even along the International border in Jammu and kashmir.
On Friday night Pak rangers, for the first time in last 10 years, targeted at least 25 border posts in Kathua, Samba, Hiranagar, RS Pura, Pargwal sectors in the biggest ever ceasefire violation.
The firing which started around 7.00 p.m continued till 4.00 a.m in the wee hours and Pak rangers used automatic weapons and mortars to target the Indian posts.
The Pak rangers also targeted the forward Indian villages during the night while exchanging intense fire with BSF in RS Pura, Pargwal, Hiranagar and Samba sectors
The BSF claimed the Pak rangers were trying hard to push large group of infiltrators through the International border.
Alert BSF jawans killed one of the intruder in Samba sector in the wee hours even as Pak rangers refused to accept the dead body feigning complete ignorance about the infiltration bid from their sector.
On its part the BSF tried to lodge strong protest but the Pak rangers could not gather enough courage to face their Indian counterparts.
The BSF,according to official sources, later sent across their message through a messenger.
Meanwhile due to overnight exchange of firing in different sectors of Kathua,Samba,Hiranagar, RS Pura, Pargwal, Kanachak the border residents were panic stricken and preparing to migrate in the event of situation taking an ugly turn. The border villagers could not visit their fields during the day and even the shops in the border areas remained closed.
Most of the residents in RS Pura and Samba sectors collected remains of mortar shells from their fields and collected empty cases of bullets from their courtyard. The elderly citizens, children and women folk are worst hit due to escalating tension in the area.
The villagers in the border areas are cursing their fate as they claim it is difficult to go away at a time when our crops are standing in the fields and yet we have not been given the permission to visit them and work in our fields.
It may be mentioned that on Thursday when Pak rangers targeted Pargwal and RS Pura sectors large number of farmers were trapped in their fields for long hours and were later rescued by the BSF and local youth to the safer places.
