However, there were no reports of casualties from either side.
The latest exchange of fire comes amid reports that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi may meet later this week at the sidelines of Shangai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in Russia.
Earlier on April 16, BSF resorted to unprovoked shelling but their guns fell silent after Pakistan Rangers effectively returned fire.
