"Our troops responded with equal calibre weapons."
Jammu, June 18 - Pakistani troops fired at Indian positions along the border in Jammu region, provoking retaliatory firing by Indian border guards, an official said Wednesday.

Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing in Suchetgarh area in Samba district Tuesday afternoon, a Border Security Force (BSF) official told IANS here.

The BSF had Tuesday declined to comment on the violations of the 2003 India-Pakistan ceasefire in Kashmir.

The firing by Pakistan Rangers started around noon and continued for 15 minutes, the officer said. They used automatics and light weapons.

Our troops responded with equal calibre weapons.
