Jammu, Jan 11 (IANS) There was an exchange of fire between the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) and either militants or Pakistani Rangers in Kanachak sector, near Akhnoor along the international border, BSF sources said Monday.

After noticing some movement near the border in Kanachak sector, about 35 km west of Jammu, a BSF patrol party opened fire in the early hours of Monday. This led to retaliation from the Pakistani side. “We are not sure if the fire that came from Pakistan was by Pakistani Rangers or a group of militants trying to infiltrate into the Indian side,” BSF sources said.

Visibility was poor due to fog. However, once daylight broke the BSF personnel found that the barbed wire fence erected on the Indian side to check infiltration from Pakistan “was cut at two points”.

“Militants were taking advantage of the thick fog along the international border,”
