BSF soldier killed in ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Jammu's Samba sector

A Border Security Force soldier lost his life in a cross-border firing along the International Boundary (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district on the intervening night of May 14 and 15.

India too has been looking to use hi-tech surveillance equipment to ensure Pakistani forces are unable to provide mortar-fire cover to terrorists attempting to sneak into India.

The heavy firing reportedly continued for an hour during which Constable Devender was hit by a stray bullet through a loophole of his picket. This is the fourth infiltration bid to be foiled by the BSF along the IB in the past four days.

"Searches are on all along the border and once they (terrorists) will be traced out, we will neutralise them", said Mr Sharma adding that so far no tunnel has been detected but our men are on job and anti-tunnelling exercise is also in place.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit the troubled Jammu and Kashmir state on May 19. "Pakistan violates ceasefire. BSF does not start it".

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

"After the completion of cultivation (season), sniping and cross border firing is a usual thing and the latest incidents are the part of this phenomenon", the BSF chief said. This time it is not going to be an exception.

The DG BSF noted there is large number of terrorists waiting on the launching pads across to sneak into J&K. "We will take appropriate action", he said.
