Tit for Tat- BSF kills 4 Pakistani Rangers in return of killing 1 BSK Jawan on ceasefire violations !!




Four Pakistani Rangers were killed in the firing by the BSF at the International Border. This comes after Home Minister Rajnath Singh's go-ahead to the BSF saying Indian should provide appropriate reply to any unprovoked firing by Pakistan.

A local resident in Samba, says firing was going on since morning. "We were asked to stay inside, how are we supposed to live like this?"


After heavy firing by BSF, Pakistan Rangers show white flags along the International Border asking the BSF to cease firing. India has stopped retaliatory firing following the 'surrender'.  The BSF has destroyed six permanent bunkers belonging to the Rangers. 
In the second ceasefire violation in the past 24 hours, Pakistani Rangers on Wednesday fired on a BSF patrol party along the International Border in Samba district of Jammu & Kashmir, killing a jawan and injuring another.
A BSF jawan was killed in the heavy firing, the IG said, adding that troops were on routine patrol when the firing took place.

The jawan has been identified as constable Sri Ram Gowria. Another jawan suffered minor injuries.



Over 550 incidents of ceasefire violations by Pakistan occurred in 2014, the highest since the  came into force in 2003, with the Indo-Pak border witnessing the worst such escalation during August to October which left 13 people, including 2 security personnel dead, and thousands displaced.

 Jammu and Kashmir's Line of Control and the International Border this year witnessed 562 violations, with increased shelling, firing, Border Action Team  and sniper attacks on civilian areas and forward posts by the Pakistani troops. As many as 410 ceasefire violations were reported along IB and 152 violations along LoC, in which 19 people, including 5 jawans, were killed.
