Jammu and Kashmir: BSF trooper injured in cross-border firing in Samba
A Border Security Force (BSF) trooper was injured on Thursday as the armies of India and Pakistan exchanged fire along the international border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba district.
The Pakistani rangers resorted to firing on the IB in Samba and Hiranagar sectors, BSF sources said. The rangers fired at some dozen BSF border outposts.
The BSF trooper was injured at the Regal Post. “The BSF positions retaliated effectively. Firing exchanges between the two sides continued till the early hours, they added.
On Tuesday, a BSF constable was killed in Pakistan firing on the IB in Samba.
The firing exchange comes two days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi starts his visit to J&K on May 19.
