Jammu, Jan 3 (IANS) A woman was killed and eight other people were injured Saturday in Pakistani shelling along the international border in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba and Kathua districts, police said.

The woman identified as 45-year-old Toshi Devi, wife of Somnath and a resident of Mangu Chak village in Samba district, was injured in the shelling and succumbed to her injuries at a hospital.

The eight injured were being treated in the same hospital in Jammu, a police officer told IANS.

The shelling forced scores of villagers to migrate.

Reports from the border villages of Manyari, Paansar, Bobia, Londi, Sadechak, Chailari, Chachwal, Mangu Chak, Regaal, Mawa, Sadho and Chak Fakira said dozens of families started migrating to safer places because of the shelling.

Police also said Pakistan Rangers had fired at Border Security Force outposts around 9.30 p.m. Friday.

The BSF retaliated to the Pakistani firing.

The firing exchange that stopped at 3.30 a.m. Saturday resumed in Hiranagar, Ramgarh and Samba sectors of the international border, police said.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party activists carried out a protest march in Jammu against the Pakistani shelling.
