New Delhi: Hours after terrorist attack at Army base in Baramulla on Sunday night, a ceasefire violation by Pakistan rangers along the border in Gurdaspur, Punjab has been reported on Monday. 

As per reports, firing is underway at the Border Security Force (BSF) Chakri post in Gurdaspur.

Ever since the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army across the Line of Control (LoC) on September 26 took place, such ceasefire has become frequent.

A BSF official said, “They fired at the BSF post. Our troopers immediately retaliated the firing. The intruders retreated back to Pakistan. A search operation has been launched in the area today (Monday) morning.”
 
Terrorists, suspected to be from Pakistan, had attacked the frontier Indian Air Force (IAF) base in Pathankot town of Punjab on January 2 this year, leaving seven security personnel dead.
 
The Pathankot attack was preceded by a terror attack by Pakistani terrorists in Dinanagar town of Gurdaspur district on July 27 last year.
