BSF Officer Killed Six Injured in Pakistan Shelling

The couple was killed in the shelling when a mortar exploded in their house in Chandu Chak village in RS Pura sector, Hindustan Times reported.

The slain officer was identified as a 28-year-old constable Sitaram Upadhyaya of 192 Battalion.

Besides this, a BSF jawan posted in the border outpost at Pittal in Arnia sector was injured in the firing around 6:45 am.

Official sources maintained Pak rangers may have targeted the BSF posts as massive search operations were launched by the BSF in the same sector to uncover the cross border tunnel possibly used by the infiltrators late Sunday night to sneak inside the Indian territory.

Giving details, the officer said, Pakistan Rangers violated the ceasefire and resorted to heavy and unprovoked mortar shelling and firing along the IB on 10 to 15 BOPs in Samba and Kathua districts since May 16 night.

In retrospect, that's probably a better deal than the Celtics' package. The Nets pick was not even as good as the Cavaliers hoped it would be.

The BSF personnel retaliated effectively to the firing while intermittent exchange of fire at some places was still continuing. He hailed from Giridih, Jharkhand. "There was no firing and shelling from across the border since yesterday in Kathua and Samba districts", the officer said. Upadhyay is survived by a three-year-old son and a one-year-old daughter, they said.

A soldier of the Border Security Force (BSF) was martyred on Tuesday after Pakistan violated ceasefire yet again in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba sector.

The incidents of unprovoked firing and attempts to infiltrate the IB have increased in the last few days even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to reach Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow as part of an official visit. Two civilians have also suffered injuries in the unprovoked firing initiated by Pakistan during wee hours. Troops also foiled four infiltration bids along the IB since May 12.

The district authorities also closed down educational institutions falling in the 5 km radius of the worldwide border.

A statement issued by the group said: "Operation Halt is a cruel joke with the freedom-loving people of Kashmir engaged in a legitimate movement for right to self-determination".
