He said both the personnel, including an Assistant Sub-Inspector, later succumbed to injuries at a hospital while undergoing treatment. India's Border Security Force said its troops returned fire after Pakistani border rangers in Sialkot fired into Kashmir without provocation in the early hours of Sunday.

He said the BSF did not target civilian locations but Pakistani forces did.

Around 12 civilians were killed and two BSF personnel were martyred in the ceasefire violations in this period. The firing started on Saturday midnight.

Despite agreeing to implement the ceasefire agreement of 2003 in letter and spirit, Pakistan continued to indulge in cross border firing and terrorism.

On the Indian side about 35 villages have been affected in fresh firing and shelling, the report said. Pakistan is known for violating ceasefire and once again they proved that they cant stick to their words.

Pakistani sniper fire and shelling on Sunday that killed two BSF men and injured 14 villagers again shattered hopes of sanity on the borders and caused fear among the villagers living close to the "live" border in the plains of Jammu.

At that time as well, the firing was in retaliation for unprovoked firing and shelling from the Pakistanis which had resulted in a loss of lives.

On 29 May, the Indian and Pakistani militaries issued statements announcing their intent to implement ceasefire along the LoC. "However, we will never hold back ourselves in responding professionally to the operational demands and giving a befitting reply". 13 civilians are injured but their morale is high, we have made full arrangements to vacate people from vulnerable areas: IGP Jammu SD Singh.

The central government has already chose to construct more than 28,400 bunkers in Jammu and Kashmir for the safety of residents living along the Indo-Pak border who often face shelling from the Pakistani side. Two BSF jawans who died in the spot are constable VK Pandey of 27 years old and ASI SN Yadav of 48 years old. She had added, "The normalisation of relations between Pakistan and India is vital to both countries and the region".
