Jammu : The BSF on Thursday lodged a protest with Pakistan Rangers for unprovoked firing on one of its forward posts along the International Border here the previous day, officials said.

The level flag meeting for nearly half-an-hour was held between the two sides at border outpost Octroi in Suchetgarh this afternoon, the officials said.

On Wednesday evening, Pakistan Rangers violated ceasefire by firing on a BSF post at Makwal in the R S Pura Sector, prompting retaliation from the Indian side.

The cross-border firing continued for 25 minutes but there was no casualty or damage on the Indian side.

The officials said the meeting ended in a cordial atmosphere with both sides agreeing to maintain peace and tranquility on the International Border.
