Pakistan firing kills BSF trooper in J&K

The soldier who died was identified as Captain Brijendra Bahadur Singh.

The officials said the Pakistan Rangers violated the ceasefire agreement for the third consecutive day between the intervening night of September 14 and 15 in Arnia sector of the IB, resulting into the death of BSF constable Bijender Bahadur. They are using mortars, automatics and small arms to target nine BSF posts in Arnia. Incidents of ceasefire violation by Pakistan have already led to suspension of cross LoC travel and trade between people living in Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan occupied Kashmir over the last two months.

"Heavy firing exchanges are now going on in these areas", the source added.

He is a native of Vidya Bhawan Naraypur village in Balia district of Uttar Pradesh. Though no loss of civilian life has been reported, sources said at least one local was injured in the crossfire. The jawan succumbed to injuries on the way to hospital. On Thursday, two Pakistani soldiers were killed when BSF jawans retaliated to Pakistani attack. He is survived by his wife Sushmita Singh, according to the BSF spokesman.
