BSF Personnel Martyred in Ceasefire Violation Along International Border in Jammu

A Border Security Force (BSF) trooper was killed on Tuesday in ceasefire violation by the Pakistan Rangers on the global border in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district.

Referring to the killing of a BSF jawan in firing from across the border, Sharma said the sacrifice would not go in vain and assured "appropriate action" against Pakistan. Sources said around 11.30 pm, the BSF troops noticed some movement across the border and fired tracer rounds to illuminate the area.

This is the fourth infiltration bid to be foiled by the BSF along the IB in the past four days.

Earlier, on May 10, another civilian lost his life in small arms firing by Pakistani forces along the line of control (LoC) in Poonch district.

Reports say the troops had reported "suspicious movement" near the border. An illumination bomb was sacked at the site and troops opened fire from LMG.

The soldier has been identified as constable Devendra Singh. "Large number of terrorists is waiting across on the launch pads".

Jammu: A group of five to six terrorists from Pakistan have managed to infiltrate from across the border in Samba sector of Jammu region. "BSF does not initiate (ceasefire violations) from this side, but whenever Pakistan initiates, we give them a befitting response", Sharma told reporters at the BSF headquarters in Jammu. "Pakistan is trying hard to push them into Indian side", he said. This time it is not going to be an exception.
