BSF Ceasefire Violated in Sialkot

India’s Border Security Forces (BSF) began “unprovoked” firing in Sialkot’s Bajwat sector just a day after India and Pakistan held a 45-minute long commander-level flag meeting to defuse the tension between both sides, News reported on Thursday.

This incident of firing, however, did not result in any casualties. Firing from the Indian side stopped soon after Pakistan’s Chenab Rangers retaliated strongly.

Prior to Wednesday’s meeting, which took place between the commanders of the BSF and the Chenab Rangers, the Director General of Military Operations (DGMOs) of both countries had spoken on their hotline on Tuesday and agreed to reduce tension along the Line of Control (LoC).

A recent spate of LoC and working boundary violations since July has resulted in casualties and injuries, when Indian troops resorted to “unprovoked” firing. On July 23, the working boundary between India and Pakistan was violated when one person was killed in Shakargarh sector.

On July 20, a man was killed in Mirajke after the Indian BSF allegedly opened fire.
