J&K: 4 BSF men killed in ceasefire violation by Pakistan

On May 29, the Directors General of Military Operations of India and Pakistan had established a special hotline contact and agreed to undertake honest measures to improve the existing situation, ensuring peace and avoidance of hardships to the civilians along the LoC and Working Boundary. He asserted that it was premature to say about any involvement of Pakistan special force BAT in it. "We lost four of our personnel". "Our heart goes to those who lost their dear ones", he said.

The fallen BSF men - three of whom were from Rajasthan - were identified as Assistant Commandant Jitendra Singh, Sub Inspector Rajneesh Kumar, Assistant Sub Inspector Ramniwas and Constable Hansraj. Three other bordermen received severe injuries. "Injured BSF personnel have been evacuated to hospital", the statement said. Jitendra Singh hailed from Jaipur, Hansraj Gurjar was from Alwar and Ramniwas from Sikar while Rajneesh Kumar was from Etah in Uttar Pradesh.

The firing from across the border in Chamliyal post area of Ramgarh sector started around 10.30 pm yesterday and continued till 4.30 am, a police official said, requesting anonymity. "We have to remain alert 24x7 on the borders", said a BSF official.

Pakistan has violated ceasefire several times since the Directors-General of Military Operations of India and Pakistan agreed to strictly adhere to the ceasefire pact of 2003 and settle any border disputes through discussion.

The fresh ceasefire violation has come eight days after Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistan Rangers held a commander-level meeting to end the hostilities and ensure peace on the International Border in Jammu division.

AJK officials regret that apart from the exchange of heavy shelling across the LoC, Indian troops have added a new cowardly and terrible practice to incessant ceasefire violations - sniping with heavy calibre weapons and targeting innocent men, women and children while they carry out their daily chores.

A similar truce was agreed upon on May 21, after a wave of ceasefire violations left two BSF jawans and four civilians dead.

Prior to it, the DGMO of Pakistan called up his Indian counterpart to stop retaliatory firing by the BSF and restore peace in the volatile border.

The BSF said Pakistan has betrayed India by not honouring its commitment made at the recent DGMOs level talk which was followed by a sector commander level flag meeting earlier this month.
