The Border Security Force handed over mortal remains of two Pakistani infiltrators to Pakistan Rangers on Thursday.

Of these, 78 Gujjars living in Jorafarm village were caught in shelling and evacuated by the police.Similarly, others were evacuated from other villages located along the IB in Arnia border. Pakistan military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted the pictures of injured and dead and accused India of targetting civilians on World Peace Day.

When challenged by the BSF troops, the infiltrators fired along the ambush line with automatic weapons. The firing also caused damage to two private houses and prompted the authorities to relocate over 700 residents to safer locations.

Educational institutes close to the worldwide border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir remained shut on Thursday following overnight Pakistan shelling.

Unfortunately, cross-border infiltrations between India and Pakistan have been taking place for years, but up till now, Pakistan has never accepted than any infiltrators killed by the Indian troops were actually Pakistani citizens and therefore did not accept the bodies either.

The officials in winter capital Jammu said that the Pakistan Rangers resorted to "unprovoked" firing in violation of the November 2003 ceasefire agreement in IB's Arnia, Ranbir Singh Pura and Ramgarh sectors.
