Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir)[India], Oct.23(ANI): The Pakistan rangers on Sunday continued to violated ceasefire along the International Border in the R.S. Pura sector in Jammu district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Border Security Force is currently monitoring the situation.

In the intervening night of October 19-20, BSF troops foiled an infiltration bid in Bobiyan village of Hira Nagar Sector in Jammu, in which one militant was killed; whereas, in the same area, Pakistani Rangers today targeted the BSF domination along the International Boundary, in which one BSF Constable Gurnam Singh received a bullet injury.

The Constable was evacuated to the Jammu Government Medical College with the cover fire, however, he succumbed to his injuries.

Early on Thursday morning, Pakistan had resorted to ceasefire violation in Bhimer Gali(BG) sector of Rajouri and in Hiranagar sector of Kathua district.

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. (ANI)
