Jammu: Pakistan Rangers fired at Indian positions overnight on the international border in Samba and Jammu districts, causing no damage, police said Thursday.

A senior police officer told IANS in winter capital Jammu Thursday, "Pakistan Rangers fired at BSF positions in Ramgarh sector(Samba district) on the international border during the night.

"BSF did not retaliate to Pakistan firing. They also fired a few shots towards BSF outposts in Makwal sector of Jammu district during the night".

Authorities are closely monitoring the situation on the international border and the line of control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir because residents of border villages will exercise franchise to elect representatives for the state assembly this year.
