Five people, including four civilians and a BSF trooper, were killed and 10 others injured on Friday in Pakistani shelling and firing on the international border in Jammu district, officials said.
The civilian dead included a 45-year-old woman and three males.
He said that an evacuation of civilians from the affected areas was on because intermittent firing exchanges were going on between the Indian and Pakistani sides.
The Chief Minister tweeted: "Continued firing on the border in Jammu is cause of pain and worry. Sad that while our country took the lead in starting peace initiatives with cessation of operations during Ramzan, Pakistan has shown no respect whatsoever for this holy month."
In another comment, she said: "Pakistan will have to reciprocate and contribute to efforts for lasting peace. Everyone must realise that violence is a zero sum game. My deepest condolences to families of the victims."
Pakistani Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing and shelling on the international border in Jammu's R.S. Pura, Bishnah and Arnia sectors beginning at 1 a.m. on Friday, sources in the BSF said.
The BSF retaliated strongly and effectively at all these places.
The police said bullet-proof vehicles were being used to evacuate civilians from areas close to the border.
The ceasefire violation by Pakistan continued for the third consecutive day on Friday. During the last two days, the Pakistan Rangers violated ceasefire in Kathua and Samba districts.
