Jammu: A Border Security Force (BSF) jawan was martyred on Tuesday in ceasefire violation by Pakistani rangers on the worldwide border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district. After getting injured in the violation, Singh was admitted to Military Hospital.

The incident reportedly happened in the early hours of Tuesday when Pakistani forces began unprovoked firing from across the LoC in the Samba sector.

The firing from across the border comes barely four days ahead of the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the state.


JAMMU Security forces on Monday launched a search operation along the International Border (IB) in Kathua district upon noticing suspicious movement of suspected terrorists in the area. Army helicopters are carrying out search operations in the area. The deceased included 17 security personnel.

On May 10, a 22-year-old civilian was killed in small arms firing by Pakistani forces along the line of control (LoC) in Poonch district. There was a lull in firing noted along the IB in the past 3 months after intense border skirmishes in January and February. The Pak firing was a violation of the ceasefire border villages had been experiencing for almost two months in the Jammu region.
