Srinagar: Educational institutes close to the international border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir remained shut on Thursday following overnight Pakistan shelling. The shelling, however, still continued.

"All schools within 5 km from the IB in Jammu district will remain closed until further notice," authorities said here.

The Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked and indiscriminate shelling targeting 12 villages and Border Security Force (BSF) posts in Arnia sector since Wednesday night.

"BSF troopers retaliated effectively," the police added.
