Mumbai [India], Oct. 25 (ANI): The National Congress Party (NCP) has urged the government to take preventive measures to stop ceasefire violations along the International Border (IB).

"Unfortunately, unabated ceasefire violations from the other side are going on and there are firings causing injuries to our jawans and even death is caused, it is very sad that this is happening. Our government needs to take some initiatives to prevent this kind from happening and Pakistan must refrain from doing so," NCP leader Majid Memon told ANI.

Two BSF soldiers suffered bullet injuries along with a woman resident in an unprovoked firing in the R S Pura Sector by Pakistani troopers.

BSF soldier Sushil Kumar, 47, succumbed to his injuries in an attack on Sunday night. Kumar, a resident of Kurukshetra in Haryana, was inducted into the force in 1992.

The firing comes after a brief pause of nearly 48 hours as Pakistani Rangers resorted to arms firing and mortar shelling on at least three places in the sector.

This also came after another soldier Gurnam Singh succumbed to his injuries on Sunday in firing by Pakistani snipers in Bobiya area of Hira Nagar sector on the LoC on Friday.

In response the BSF had launched a counter offensive in which, it claimed, seven Pakistan Rangers and a militant were killed on Friday. (ANI)
