BSF jawan killed in Jammu in ceasefire violation by Pakistan

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.

Five infiltrators sneaked into Hiranagar sector probably through a tunnel on Sunday night and efforts are on to detect and neutralise them, Sharma said. But this time, Pakistani troops also fired and Constable Devender Singh Baghel, who was firing his LMG, was hit by a bullet, through the loophole, in the left eye. He said a bigger infiltration bid aided by the Pakistani rangers was, however, foiled by the BSF on the global border (IB) on Tuesday. While Indian forces retaliated strongly, a BSF constable - Devender Kumar - lost his life.

"There is a possibility that a group of terrorists may have infiltrated through a tunnel a few days ago".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit the troubled Jammu and Kashmir state on May 19.


Pakistan has repeatedly violated ceasefire agreement with India, with more than 650 such incidents this year alone - till April. "The anti-tunneling exercise is going on", he said.

"The BSF always gives a befitting reply to Pakistan".

"We have planned to roll out the project to make the Pakistan border safer and secure and completely covered by the technology", he said.

Terming the infiltration attempts ahead of the PM visit a "serious incident", Sharma said they (security forces) need to remain extra vigilant.
