JAMMU, Jan 20 - An Army jawan was among four killed while nine others were injured as Pakistani troops shelled border outposts and civilian areas along the international border and LoC in the Jammu region for the third consecutive day today.

The ceasefire violations triggered migration of over 10,000 people from their border hamlets as the authorities sounded a red alert and asked people to move to safer areas.

Over 300 educational institutes along the international border and LoC in the Jammu region have been closed for the next three days by the administration in the wake of increased tension due to the shelling.

As many as 10 persons, including six civilians and four jawans, were killed and nearly 50 including some jawans were injured in the shelling during the past two days.

Yesterday, two civilians and two jawans were killed and 35 others, including three jawans, injured in heavy mortar shelling by Pakistan troops on civilian areas and outposts along the IB and LoC in Jammu, Samba, Kathua and Rajouri districts of Jammu and Kashmir.

On Wednesday also a BSF jawan and a teenage girl were killed and 8 others injured in Samba and Jammu districts.

�Pakistan resorted to unprovoked shelling in Gajansoo area of Kanachak sector in Jammu this afternoon and shells fell in the Gajansoo bus stand in which two persons were injured. One later died,� police said.

Pakistan rangers also shelled forward hamlets in RS Pura, police said, adding that two civilians were killed and five others injured.

Pakistan army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms and automatics and mortar bombs in Krishnagati sector along LoC in Poonch around 8:20 am, a defence spokesman said, adding that the Indian Army retaliated strongly and effectively. � PTI
