Jammu, Oct 29, 2016: In another incident of ceasefire violation, A Border Security Force (BSF) soldier was killed on Saturday by Pakistani troops in Macchil sector along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.
A BSF official said that 28-year-old Constable Koli Nitin Subhash, hailing from Sangli in Maharashtra, was martyred this morning in firing by Pakistani security forces.
Subhash had joined BSF in 2008 and is survived by his wife and two sons aged four years and two years.
The fresh casualty came hours after militants, aided by the cover fire by Pakistani Army, last night crossed the LoC in the sector. They killed an Indian army jawan and mutilated his body prompting the Indian army to warn that “the incident will be responded to appropriately“.
Four army and three BSF personnel have died in the latest escalation along the boundary with Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir.
Earlier in the morning, Pakistan initiated a heavy shelling attacking the BSF posts and civilians on the International Border (IB) in Hiranagar sector and R.S.Pura in Jammu and Kashmir.
