A trooper of the Border Security Force (BSF) was killed in Pakistani cross-border fire on Wednesday.
BSF head constable RP Hazra was killed in ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba sector.
To avenge the loss of its jawan’s life, the BSF responded in a fitting manner and silenced Pakistani guns.
The paramilitary force said in a statement that two Pakistani mortar positions were destroyed in retaliatory fire.
“The unprovoked fire from Pakistan started first from small arms which was later coupled by mortar shellings. Two Pakistani mortar positions were located, targeted and destroyed by BSF troopers yesterday night only. The coordinated precision fire of BSF troopers silenced Pakistani guns,” the BSF said on Thursday.
Constable Hazra was killed on a day when he was celebrating his birthday. He is survived by his wife, an 18-year-old son and a 21-year-old daughter.
Meanwhile, one intruder was gunned down by the BSF at International Border in Arnia area of Jammu and Kashmir’s RS Pura sector.
