UPDATE: A civilian and a BSF jawan have been injured in a fresh ceasefire violation. The civilian was injured in akshmir's RS Pura sector, while the jawan was injured in the Akhnoor sector, ANI reported. 

Pakistan once again violated ceasefire and opened fire at Border Security Force positions along the International border, killing one civilian. 

A 28-year-old man was killed by mortar shelling in Jammu and Kashmir's Pargwal sector, as per reports. 

"A civilian identified as Sanjay Kumar was killed due to shelling by Pakistan Rangers in civilian areas today (Tuesday) morning. They used mortars, automatics and small arms. The BSF retaliated using same caliber weapons. Heavy shelling and firing exchanges are underway in the area," a police officer told IANS. 

The BSF had reportedly fired along the border at the Kanachak area of the Jammu district suspecting an infiltration attempt on Monday night, IANS reported.

Pakistan Rangers, however, opened 'unprovoked' fire on Tuesday morning. 

"BSF fired to thwart any possible infiltration attempt after which it was quiet till morning.But at 6.05 a.m., Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing at the BSF border outpost," , a police officer told IANS.

The killing of a civilian comes just days after an Indian Army jawan was killed in Pak firing in Poonch sector in Kashmir. 

Tuesday's firing was the eight ceasefire violation in a week. 

Last month, 19 ceasefire violations had been reported, which also claimed four lives on the Indian side of the border.
