BSF jawan martyred in Pak firing along IB in Jammu

BSF trooper injured in J&K in Pakistan firing

BSF troops guarding the borderline retaliated and the exchange of fire was going on when reports last came in, the officer said.

In the ceasefire violation in RS Pora, a BSF constable was killed and 2 civilians were injured.

Just a day before the scheduled visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Jammu & Kashmir, a BSF constable and a couple were among three people killed, as Pakistani Rangers continued targeting forward Indian posts and civilian areas with mortar shells and small arms fire along the global border on Friday.

The Pakistani rangers resorted to unprovoked firing on the IB in Samba and Hiranagar sectors, BSF sources said. Upadhyay leaves behind a 3-year-old daughter and a 1-year-old son.

In the heavy Pakistan shelling in R S Pura and Arnia sectors, five civilians were also injured and evacuated to hospitals by police in bullet-proof vehicles, a police officer said.

On May 15, a 28-year-old BSF man was killed in cross-border shelling along the International Border in Samba sector.
