Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Apr 2 (ANI): Paying tribute to Border Security Force (BSF) Inspector T Alex Lalminlun who lost his life in ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Poonch, Director General (DG) BSF RK Mishra on Thursday extended support to the troops.
Mishra, who lent a shoulder to the mortal remains of the BSF jawan, told reporters here, “It's an unfortunate incident. The message to the troops is that don't get demoralised, we are solidly behind you."
“It is unfortunate that Pakistan is targeting the civilians. However, we are retaliating very strongly and efficiently,” he added.
Lalminlun and a five-year-old girl were killed in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Mankote and Krishna Ghati sectors of Poonch. Moreover, a total of five security personnel were injured in the attack.
According to the officials, Pakistani troops violated ceasefire by firing mortar shells and small arms along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch. (ANI)
