"One Border Security Force (BSF) trooper has also been killed in the shelling which continues since night", Vaid said, adding that twenty civilians were also wounded.

Jammu, Jan. 20 (PTI): Advocating for restarting the peace process between India and Pakistan and end border skirmishes, the Jammu and Kashmir government said today the hostility between the two nations has a direct bearing on the people of the state. On the other hand, a BSF jawan has been martyred in firing by Pakistani troops in Samba.

Over a dozen cattle too perished in heavy shelling of civilian facilities by Pakistan Rangers.

The injured civilian was evacuated amid heavy shelling by the relatives and his condition is stated to be stable and out of danger.

The BSF is retaliating and the exchange of fire between the two sides was underway till the last reports were received.

The people of Jammu and Kashmir are the worst victims of the hostility between the two neighbouring countries.

Faisal said the firing resulted in the death of a 24-year-old civilian and injured nine others in village Harpal. The Indian authorities have also deployed bulletproof vehicles for the evacuation of those injured amid the intensified fight.

Director General (SA & SAARC) Dr Mohammad Faisal summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh Friday in Islamabad and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian forces, according to a foreign ministry statement. Over 1,000 people are housed in camps in RS Pura, Sambha and Kathua area.

The violation of ceasefire, union minister of state for Home Hansraj Ahir, while talking to reporters, in Maharashtra said, has become 'Pakistan's nature due to their twisted mindset.' "We should not fire the frist bullet".

The heavily militarised LoC as well as Working Boundary have been witnessing frequent skirmishes and artillery duels, in a serious breach of a ceasefire agreement signed by both armies in November 2003.
