Eight civilians were killed in cross-border firing in Jammu and Kashmir's Ramgarh sector, Samba district. While eight people were injured in this region, several other residents of border villages sustained injuries after getting caught in the exchange of fire in Rajouri district's Naushera sector as well as in RS Pura district's Arnia sector, ANI reported. Among the fatalities were a 19-year-old woman and two boys.

Defence Public Relations Officer Manish Mehta said there was intermittent firing in Nowshera sector. "Pakistan is targeting forward areas with heavy mortars, but Indian forces are responding with equal measure," he said, "We don't have any casualties and are giving them a hard-hitting reply."

Reports of ceasefire violations by Pakistan have increased since the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes along the Line of Control on September 29. On Saturday, the Army had said it had destroyed four Pakistani posts across the LoC in Kashmir's Keran sector through a "massive fire assault". Unidentified officials had also said that Pakistan had suffered "heavy casualties" in the operation.

At least one Border Security Force jawan was killed and another injured during the shelling on Friday. Two civilians were also reported dead, while the BSF said 15 Pakistani soldiers were killed, after the exchange of fire in the Pallanwala, Sunderwani, Nowshera and RS Pura sectors. However, the Pakistani Army had refuted the claim that its soldiers were killed.
