SIALKOT: The Indian Border Security Forces (BSF) resorted to unprovoked and intensified mortar shelling on border villages here on Monday.

No injury or death was reported in the fresh spell of Indian shelling that started at about 1am and continued intermittently till 6am.

The Chenab Rangers retaliated in a befitting manner, making the Indian guns silent, senior CR officials said.

They said the Indian BSF again targeted the civilian population in villages of Bajra Garhi, Umeraanwali, Harpal, Mairajkey and Charwah sectors of the Working Boundary. Some people said several mortar shells which landed on fields could not explode. They said bullets and mortar shells also hit several empty houses, damaging them further.
