People in R S Pura and Arnia sectors had a sleepless night as the shelling was so intense that it was audible even upto 20 kms away. Over a dozen BSF border outposts were affected due to the shelling, sources said, adding that BSF troops were retaliating.

The continued mortar shelling, which started along the International Border after BSF foiled an infiltration attempt by a group of terrorists at Bobiya in Hiranagar sector, on the intervening night of October 19-20, has forced many to migrate to safer places.

The administration has ordered closer of schools falling in border areas and setting up of camps at safer places. Those still staying in the affected areas have been asked not to venture out of their houses during shelling. Meanwhile, farmers are worried about their paddy crops, which is ready for harvesting.

    stan is a proven terrorist nation. lt;br/gt;I dont know how many more years will the UN and US take to realize the extent of threat from stan. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;UN and US should impose heave penalties on stan(The terrorist Nation).lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;China should also be imposed with heavy sanctions and should be expelled from UN and NSG because it is supporting and feeding terrorism by funds as well as arms and ammunition.

                      there is a perfect solution for this, which is to show the footage of surgical strike showing the terrorists and there launchpads being destro in pak military area near loc, this will be the strongest evidence against the pak army that it is still supporting terrorism and its so called fight against terrorism is selective. this will force america to send its fund to stan in the name of fight against terror, and also all the countries of the world will be forced to accept that pak is a terrorist country, this willl bring pak to its knees...
