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.
