RS PURA:  Saying that it did not expect Pakistan to carry out such an intensified shelling and firing in Jammu on the day of Eid today, BSF has assured that the force will take whatever retaliatory action it has to.

"Whatever retaliatory action BSF has to take, will be undertaken," Director General of BSF D K Pathak told reporters here.

"Our force is a professional force and we will respond very professionally to the Pak firing," he said.

Pathak flew to Jammu from New Delhi and rushed to R S Pura border belt to chair a meeting of top officers of the Jammu Frontier to review the situation emerging in view of shelling and firing in the Arnia belt.

"The incident is not a good incident. There has been casualties, but we have responded to it," he said.

"We were not expecting that they will resort to such an intensified shelling and firing on Eid," Pathak added.

"Every ceasefire violation has been engineered by them and we are not responsible for any ceasefire violation," he said.

In one of the worst ceasefire violations by Pakistan, five villagers were killed and 34 injured today in heavy mortar shelling and firing from across the international border and Line of Control in Jammu and Poonch sectors.
