JUST IN: Two terrorists were killed as Indian Army foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control in Machhil sector in Kashmir, the defence spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, the Border Security Force said Pakistani troops targeted Indian border outposts and hamlets along the International Border in Jammu district in overnight firing and shelling.

There have been continuous ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the IB for the past four days, in which one BSF jawan was killed and a few others were injured.

Pakistani troops started firing at Indian posts in Arnia sector around midnight, prompting BSF personnel to retaliate, a BSF officer said.

"Firing stopped at 6.45 am," the officer said.

One temple, two houses and three cowsheds were damaged in the Pakistani firing in Sai, Treva and Jabowl villages.

Three livestock were killed in the overnight shelling, the officer added.

BSF jawan Bijender Bahadur was killed and a villager injured yesterday when Pakistan troops resorted to firing and shelling along the IB in Arnia sector.

Two Pakistani soldiers were killed in retaliatory action by the BSF on Thursday, while three Indian jawans were injured in unprovoked firing and shelling by Pakistani troops along the IB and the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Poonch districts on Wednesday.  -- PTI
