"Pakistan Rangers violated the ceasefire along the IB using small arms and targeted the forward Regal Post in Samba sector," Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Samba, Joginder Singh said.

They fired five-six rounds of small arms at around 0215 hours. BSF personnel manning the forward position did not retaliate, he said.
