JK: BSF soldier killed in cross-border firing in Samba

A Border Security Force (BSF) constable died of injuries he had received in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan along the worldwide border in Jammu and Kashmir's 's Samba sector on Monday night.

"A BSF trooper was martyred yesterday", said KK Sharma.

The constable identified as Davender Singh Baghel was hit by a bullet from across the IB and was rushed to the military hospital where he succumbed to injuries. This is the fourth infiltration bid to be foiled by the BSF along the IB in the past four days.

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

The IB in the districts of Jammu, Samba and Kathua had witnessed heavy shelling by Pakistan Rangers earlier this year when several civilian and BSF troopers lost their life. We have not so far detected any tunnel but we are looking for it.

However, the frequent ceasefire violation by Pakistan was going on along the LoC.

Asked about intelligence reports suggesting presence of terrorists at launching pads across the border, he said there is no second thought that a lot of terrorists were present at the launching pads and Pakistan is attempting to push them into this side.

"The BSF always gives a befitting reply to Pakistan". Sources said around 11.30 pm, the BSF troops noticed some movement across the border and fired tracer rounds to illuminate the area. "We will take appropriate action", he said.
