Trooper killed in Pakistan firing along IB in Jammu sector

The BSF retaliated and during the exchange of fire, which continued for almost four hours, Baghel was injured.

The revelation has come on the day when BSF foiled another Pakistan-abetted infiltration bid on the IB in Manguchack area in the Hiranagar sector of Jammu.

According to sources, security personnel deployed along the IB in Samba and Kathua districts have been on high alert for the last three days after receiving inputs of terrorist infiltration.

BSF troops fired few illumination rounds as area close to global boundary has thick foliage and hinders observation. The militants managed to flee. The constable Devendra Singh succumbed to the injuries which he received during the ceasefire violation. "Our sister agencies and J&K police are fully alive to the situation", he said. "Large number of terrorists is waiting across on the launch pads".

Referring to the latest incidents along the worldwide border, Sharma said a group of five infiltrators may have sneaked in, while another attempt was scuttled. However, Pakistani Rangers immediately started firing on them in a bid to provide cover to the militants. "I am sure they will be detected and neutralised", the BSF chief added. This time it is not going to be an exception. These men were believed to be terrorists as they were attempting to get into the Indian side of the border. Martyrdom of Constable Singh will not go in vain.

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