Fire between Indian and Pakistani security forces in Shakargarh

05 January, 2015

SIALKOT: An exchange of fire was reported between Indian and Pakistani security forces along the Working Boundary in Sialkot's Shakargarh sector on Monday 5 January 2015.

According to a source in the Chenab Rangers, Indian Border Security Force (BSF) personnel, who were stationed at the Karole Karishna and Pansar posts in India, targeted Thakar pur and Karole posts on the Pakistani side.

Fear and panic gripped the area after the incident; however, there was no loss of life or property reported in the exchange of fire.

In December last year, the two countries had pledged to uphold the 2003 ceasefire accord which was left in tatters by repeated violations that year. The truce breaches had put the nascent bilateral peace dialogue on hold.

The Himalayan territory of Kashmir, which is the main contention, between the two countries, is divided between India and Pakistan by the UN-monitored de facto border of Line of Control (LoC). The territory is claimed in full by both the countries.
