Seven Pak rangers, 1 militant killed in retaliatory firing by BSF on Jammu border

In reply to cross boarder firing in jammu and kashmir, the BSF on Friday launched an aggressive Weapon Firing, killing one militant and seven Pakistani Rangers in Jammu and Kashmir'ss Hira Nagar sector.

On October 19-20 night, BSF troops foiled an infiltration bid in Bobiyan village of Hira Nagar Sector, in which one militant was killed.

At least seven Pakistani Rangers were also killed in a retaliatory firing.
The injured constable was evacuated to the Jammu Government Medical College. His condition remains to be critical, the report said.

The BSF said the forces are on high alert along international boundary and ready to foil any infiltration attempt.

This comes after a spree of ceasefire violations last week by Pakistan after the surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army on 29 September to destroy terror launchpads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Ever since, Pakistan has stepped up cross-border firing and has violated the Line of Control ceasefire at least 20 times.

Today's exchange of fire came a day after BSF foiled an infiltration bid by 4-6 militants, aided by cover fire by the Pakistani troops, in Bobiyan village of the same Hira Nagar Sector.

At least one militant was injured or killed in that action by BSF during the intervening night of Wednesday and Thursday as he was seen being dragged by his associates.

Earlier in the day, BSF Inspector General (Jammu) Frontier D K Uphadayaya said the ceasefire violations by Pakistani Rangers had taken place in two sectors.
