From the Web Desk, 14/06/2018, New Delhi

Notwithstanding the recent pledges to adhere to the ceasefire agreement, Pakistan Rangers resorted to fresh firing on Tuesday night, killing four Border Security Force (BSF) personnel and injuring three others on the International Border (IB) in Jammu’s Ramgarh sector.

A Jammu-based BSF spokesman said the Rangers manning Asraf post started “unprovoked firing” on the BSF post in Samba district at 9.40 p.m.

“Pakistan used flat and high-trajectory weapons to inflict casualties on the Indian side. Four BSF jawans were killed even as our men retaliated,” said the spokesman. Sources said the Rangers resorted to “heavy sniper fire.” The exchange of fire continued till 2 a.m.

The BSF identified the deceased jawans as assistant commandant Jitender Singh, sub-inspector Rajneesh, assistant sub-inspector Ramniwas and constable Hansraj.

Meet on June 21

The latest truce violation comes despite the June 4 agreement between the BSF and the Rangers “to maintain peace and tranquillity” on the border at a meeting on the IB in Jammu after the killing of two BSF jawans on June 3. The two forces will again hold a sector commander-level meeting on June 21.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti expressed deep anguish over the casualties.
