Pakistan violates ceasefire in J&K's Samba, BSF jawan martyred

BSF jawan killed as Pakistan violates ceasefire along IB in Jammu

"Pakistan Rangers started unprovoked firing and targeted forward border outposts during wee hours along the worldwide border in Samba", the official spokesman said, adding that Indian forces "retaliated strongly and effectively".

BSF troopers from nearby mounds engaged this fire effectively.During this exchange of fire, one burst from counterpart side, hit a loophole of the mound from where Constable Devender Kumar was engaging the threat.

A soldier of the Border Security Force (BSF) was killed on Monday (14.05.2018) night after Pakistan violated ceasefire yet again along the worldwide border in Jammu's Samba sector.

He said intermittent firing between the two sides was still continuing when last reports were received.

They said the BSF men launched search operation in the Hira Nagar and its adjoining areas.

Singh's death took the number of persons killed in over 700 incidents of Pakistani shelling along the IB and Line of Control (LoC) in the state - highest this year - to 33. There was a lull in firing noted along the IB in the past 3 months after intense border skirmishes in January and February.

The firing comes four days ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Jammu and Kashmir.

Tuesday's ceasefire violation disrupted the peace that the residents of border villages had been experiencing.
