"Pakistan is our hostile neighbour and tries to push terrorists and violates ceasefire regularly".

"After the completion of cultivation (season), sniping and cross border firing is a usual thing and the latest incidents are the part of this phenomenon", the BSF chief said.

The DG BSF noted there is large number of terrorists waiting on the launching pads across to sneak into J&K. This time it is not going to be an exception. "We will take appropriate action", he said.
