Asst Commandant among 4 BSF men killed in Pak firing

Three officers were among four Border Security Force (BSF) men killed and three others were severely injured in firing by Pakistan Rangers along the global border in another ceasefire violation near the famous Chamliyal shrine in Ramgarh sub sector of Samba district late Tuesday night.

The BSF said that it had honoured the ceasefire agreed at a recent sector commander-level meeting but Pakistan resorted to unprovoked firing. Tension has again gripped the International Border after a brief lull.

"Since the ceasefire was on.it is the time we use to strengthen our defences. That is how the causality has taken place", Additional Director General (ADG) of BSF Western Command, K N Chaubey, told reporters here today.

"If the United States and North Korea can return from the brink of a nuclear flashpoint, there is no reason why Pakistan and India cannot do the same, beginning with a dialogue on Kashmir whose heroic people have resisted and rejected Indian occupation", he said in a tweet hours after US President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un signed a historic pact between the two nations. "How we respond to the betrayal is our job", he said.

The younger of Sharif brothers said the Singapore Summit should set a good precedent for Pakistan and India to follow.

"Pakistan Rangers initiated cross-border firing along the IB in Ramgarh sector last night".

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) SP Vaid expressed his condolence over the incident. "Our heart goes to those who lost their dear ones", he said.

RESIDENT EVIL 2 Remake Trailer Finally Debuts At E3 2018
Zombies now react in real time as they take instant visible damage, making every bullet from the player count. In any case, the Resident Evil 2 remake looks like it's going to be worth the unbelievably long wait.

According to BSF officials, Pakistan Rangers opened fire when a patrol team arrived near the border at around 9.45pm.

The deceased have been identified as Assistant Commandant Jitender Singh, SI Rajneesh, ASI Ramniwas and Constable Hansraj. Three other bordermen received severe injuries. Four BSF soldiers were grievously injured in the attack.

The 1990 born Constable Hansraj Gurjar joined BSF in 2011 hailed from Alwar in Rajasthan and Assitant Sub Inspector Ramniwas, who was born in 1966 and joined BSF in 1988 also hailed from Sikar Rajasthan.

Meanwhile five others were injured due to cross border shelling by Pakistan rangers.

AJK officials regret that apart from the exchange of heavy shelling across the LoC, Indian troops have added a new cowardly and terrible practice to incessant ceasefire violations - sniping with heavy calibre weapons and targeting innocent men, women and children while they carry out their daily chores.

The latest Pakistani attack comes barely a week after a sector commander level flag meeting at Octroi post in RS Pura sector of Jammu district where Brigadier Amjad Hussain of Chenab Rangers had promised to uphold the sanctity of November 2003 Indo-Pak ceasefire agreement in letter and spirit.
