BSF jawan martyred in Pak firing along IB in Jammu

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.

"There was no firing and shelling from across the border since yesterday in Kathua and Samba districts", the officer said.

The local police have also issued an advisory to the locals, requesting them not to move out till the time shelling continues from the Pakistan side.

The fresh violation comes by Pakistan reportedly comes ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's J&K visit scheduled on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the wife of the slain BSF jawan expressed grief and angst over the unprovoked firing."India asked security forces not to launch operations during Ramzan but my husband was killed in firing by Pak". Troops have also foiled four infiltration bids along the IB since May 12.

Schools within the 3-km radius of the worldwide border, which often come under the cross-border firing, have been declared closed by the state administration.
