BSF kills three Pak Rangers in firing across IB

Jammu/New Delhi: A day after its jawan was injured by a sniper, the BSF on Saturday said it has killed at least three Pakistan Rangers after the other side indulged in unprovoked firing along the Indo-Pak international border (IB) in Jammu. The force also said it is "engaged in a befitting retaliation" after the Rangers began unprovoked firing in the Pargwal area of Jammu since around 3 PM.

Earlier in the day, the force said, at least half-a-dozen mortar shells were fired from across the border and they exploded in the Dewra village of Sunderbani sector along the IB.
"The force retaliated strongly during cross-border firing and shot dead at least three Pakistan Rangers," a Border Security Force (BSF) spokesperson said. On Friday, a BSF jawan, constable K K Appa Rao, was hit by a sniper round in the RS Pora sector when the Pakistani side took a direct aim at him.
