Although silence prevailed on the border in these areas till Saturday, villagers had preferred to remain indoors and avoided working in their fields.
Pakistan has been violating the bilateral ceasefire in R.S. Pura sector for the last one week, causing concern to residents in the border villages.
Indian Army and intelligence agencies believe Pakistan resorts to unprovoked firing on the line of control (LoC) and the international border in Jammu and Kashmir to facilitate infiltration by groups of armed guerrillas.
The army guards the LoC while the BSF guards the international border on the Indian side in Jammu and Kashmir.
