BSF Personnel Martyred in Ceasefire Violation Along International Border in Jammu

BSF troops thwarted an infiltration bid on Wednesday along the International Border (IB) in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir, where a high alert has been sounded ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit, officials said.

"I am sure that they will be detected and neutralised", Sharma said. He said a bigger infiltration bid aided by the Pakistani rangers was, however, foiled by the BSF on the worldwide border (IB) on Tuesday. Their number is five and HSTI recording also shows it's a five-member group. An illumination bomb was sacked at the site and troops opened fire from LMG.

The constable identified as Davender Singh Baghel was hit by a bullet from across the IB and was rushed to the military hospital where he succumbed to injuries. Sources said around 11.30 pm, the BSF troops noticed some movement across the border and fired tracer rounds to illuminate the area. "Our sister agencies and J&K police are fully alive to the situation", he said. These men were believed to be terrorists as they were attempting to get into the Indian side of the border.

Sharma said Pakistan is their hostile neighbour which always is in a process to infiltrate terrorists into this side.

"The BSF always gives a befitting reply to Pakistan". Martyrdom of Constable Singh will not go in vain.
