India and Pakistan seemed poised on the brink of a serious confrontation after the Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing and shelling on forward posts along the International Border (IB) in Ramgarh sector of J&K's Samba district that killed four BSF personnel, including assistant commandant Jitendra Singh. Four BSF soldiers were grievously injured in the attack.
The deceased have been identified as Assistant Commandant Jitender Singh, SI Rajneesh, ASI Ramniwas and Constable Hansraj.
The BSF ADG said that it was very unfortunate and "the ceasefire announcement made and agreed is to be honoured". "If they can return from their previous hostile positions of attacking each other, Pakistan and India can also resume composite dialogue", he said.

ME voters are deciding how they'd prefer to veer in their search for the successor to term-limited, conservative Republican Gov. Ruben Kihuen, two former congressmen - Democrat Steven Horsford and Republican Cresent Hardy - are the favorites.
Three others were also injured in the Pakistan firing in Jammu's Ramgarh Sector last night. Jitendra Singh hailed from Jaipur, Hansraj Gurjar was from Alwar and Ramniwas from Sikar while Rajneesh Kumar was from Etah in Uttar Pradesh. Tension has again gripped the International Border after a brief lull.
In a statement, the BSF said, "Around 2140 hours Pak Rangers Post Asraf started unprovoked firing on BOP Chamliyal with flat and high trajectory weapons".

It's immediately clear the two have romantic chemistry - and, after a few flirtatious jabs back and forth, Dina makes her move. On top of that, enemies appear to be more coordinated now, and Naughty Dog's overhauled engine looks unbelievable .
With the death of the four BSF men, Pakistan Rangers have killed 19 people and injured 67 others besides displacing over a lakh people from the border areas of Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts since May 15.
The latest casualties take the number of those killed in ceasefire violation by Pakistan along the IB and the Line of Control (LoC) this year to 51, including 25 security personnel.
AJK officials regret that apart from the exchange of heavy shelling across the LoC, Indian troops have added a new cowardly and terrible practice to incessant ceasefire violations - sniping with heavy calibre weapons and targeting innocent men, women and children while they carry out their daily chores.

The Pakistani side gave an assurance that they would not initiate any cross-border firing and the BSF reciprocated by saying that it would only retaliate when provoked. There had been two meetings of sector commanders of BSF and Pakistan Rangers too who had resolved to strictly maintain the ceasefire.
