BSF says it killed 7 Pak Rangers, a militant along Jammu border
A BSF trooper was injured as Pakistan violated ceasefire along the LoC in Rajouri and the International Border in Kathua district, prompting the Indian forces to retaliate strongly.
BSF troops had on Thursday foiled a major infiltration bid in the same area by a group of six militants.
“Pakistani soldiers resorted to indiscriminate firing from 1240 hours on the Indian Army posts along the Line of Control in Rajouri sector,” a defence spokesperson said.
A BSF officer said: “Pakistani Rangers resorted small arms firing on a forward border out post (BoP) along IB in Bobiya area of Hiranagar sector of Kathua district from 0945 hours today (Friday).”
“BSF troops guarding the borderline took positions and retaliated, resulting in the exchange which continued for over 15 minutes.”
