Pakistan today summoned India's Acting Deputy High Commissioner alleging ceasefire violation by India along the Line of Control(LoC).
At least 4 BSF personnel were killed as Pakistan opened fire in the Chambliyal sector of Samba on Wednesday morning. Three other soldiers were injured during the unprovoked firing on the border.
BSF's Kamal Nath Choubey said ceasefire is always a bilateral decision, we have always maintained the sanctity of ceasefire but Pakistan has violated it.
"We are always prepared, ceasefire or no ceasefire there is no let up in border surveillance," Choubey added.

Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) SP Vaid expressed his condolence over the incident.
During the firing on Wednesday, two BSF soldiers, one assistant commandant and one sub-inspector were killed.
