Jammu: A Border Security Force (BSF) trooper was killed when Pakistani Rangers fired at Indian posts along the India-Pakistan border at R S Pura near Jammu on Thursday evening, sources said. 'The jawan belonged to BSF's 135 battalion,' said a source. This was the eight ceasefire violation in the last 10 days. The two countries had reached a ceasefire agreement in 2003. Sources said the unprovoked firing started around 7.30pm and went on intermittently. The BSF retaliated. Reports said some families from villages close to the zero line have started moving to safer places.
