LAHORE: India’s Border Security Force (BSF) has once again opened unprovoked firing in Harpal and Charwa sectors along the border near Sialkot. Sources in Chenab Rangers said that at 1:00am on Sunday, the Indian forces fired mortar shells on the villages of Nandpur, Kaiser and Rangpur. The armed assault is a blatant violation of the ceasefire. The sources added that a prompt and strong reaction by the Chenab Rangers managed to quell the attack. The firing stopped by 6am. The Chenab Rangers have said that there were no reports of deaths and casualties. However, the incident created panic and fear among the residents of adjoining villages.
