Pak rangers violate ceasefire on J&K Intn'l Border; 1 BSF jawan killed

Intermittent firing continued across the global border in Jammu in which a Border Security Force (BSF) soldier was killed in the wee hours of Friday.

The 32-year-old Bahadur hailed from Vidya Bhawan Naraypur village in Uttar Pradesh's Balia district. One civilian too has been injured in the incident.

Earlier the LoC in neighbouring Poonch and Rajaouri districts witnessed repeated ceasefire violations by the Pakistan troops during past couple of weeks. The jawan succumbed to injuries on the way to hospital.

An Indian border guard was killed Friday after Pakistani soldiers fired at several positions along the volatile border in disputed Kashmir, an Indian paramilitary officer said. "BSF troopers are retaliating strongly and effectively", BSF sources said. Authorities are keeping vigilant with emergency services to meet any eventuality due to the unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan. He is survived by his wife Sushmita Singh.

Panic gripped border residents living in villages close to the worldwide border after the cross-border firing.

Speaking to media, Deputy Chief Minister condemned the killing and said that India will give Pakistan a befitting reply.

He said launching pads are there across the border, adding, "in coming days challenges are there but we are ready to face any thing the way we are doing". BSF Constable Brijendra Bahadur Singh was executed in terminating by Pakistan in Arnia range of Jammu and Kashmir's RS Pura segment.
