New Delhi, September 17:

Pakistani forces have unleashed “unprecedented” cross-border firing along the Indo-Pak border in Samba sector of Jammu, the Border Security Force (BSF) said on Tuesday.

It said the border guarding force mounted an “adequate retaliation” after Pakistan opened fire in the evening hours.

The unprovoked firing from across the border was done by small arms on BSF domination areas in the Samba sector, it said.

“No loss or damage to property has been reported on the Indian side,” it said.

The BSF guards the Indo-Pak International Border from Jammu to Gujarat, including the states of Punjab and Haryana.
