BSF Jawan martyred in Pakistani firing in J&K's RS Pura sector

Just a day before the scheduled visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Jammu & Kashmir, a BSF constable and a couple were among three people killed, as Pakistani Rangers continued targeting forward Indian posts and civilian areas with mortar shells and small arms fire along the worldwide border on Friday.

1991 born, constable Sitaram Upadhyay was inducted into the BSF in 2011. He hailed from Giridih, Jharkhand. He is survived by a three-year-old son and a one-year-old daughter.

A BSF Jawan was martyred in the firing by Pakistan's Rangers in Samba sector on Monday night foiling an infiltration bid by terrorists from across the border while a BSF Jawan and two civilians were injured in Pakistan's shelling in Samba and Hiranagar sectors on Thursday.

As per reports, unprovoked shelling of mortars and heavy fire from the Pakistani side started at about 4 am today which was being "suitably countered" by the BSF units.

The violation of ceasefire by Pakistan in Arnia and RS Pura Sector comes two days after India asked the security forces not to launch operations during Ramzan while accepting the proposal of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to halt security force operations during Amarnath Yatra and Ramzan.

At least half a dozen border outposts of Border Security Force (BSF) were targeted along with several civilian areas by Pak rangers in the area.

Who was the BSF jawan killed in the firing?

As a precautionary move, the district administration has ordered all government and private schools within 3 km from the IB to remain closed in Arnia, Bishnah and RS Pura sectors of Jammu division. Additional deputy commissioner, Jammu, Arun Manhas confirmed this.

BSF IG, Ram Awtar said they Indian forces are giving a befitting reply to Pakistan's unprovoked firing. "Adequate medical arrangements are being made".

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".
