India says Pakistan resorted to unprovoked fire in Samba Sector along the international border in Kashmir targeting 14 security posts last night.
Indian officials say long range mortars were also used in the attacks and some rounds landed in villages leaving two civilians wounded.
One civilian was reportedly killed and six others wounded in Kashmir by fires from Pakistan on Friday.
India’s Deputy Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Nirmal Singh said on Saturday that: “Pakistan is time and again trying to push in terrorists and ultimately they cut the fencing to get-in. That fencing was being repaired when the Pakistani rangers opened fire and one person has died in the firing.”
Meanwhile, Pakistan says six civilians were wounded by fire of Indian Border Security Forces but Indian troops say they have only responded to the firing received from across the border.
