Two BSF personnel, were on Sunday killed as Pakistan again targeted Indian posts in Pragwal area of Akhnoor and nearby Kanachak and Khour sectors along the IB with mortars.
Constable Vijay Kumar Pandey and Assistant Sub-inspector Satya Narayan Yadav, were killed and around 12 civilians injured in unprovoked and indiscriminate firing by Pakistani rangers which started around 1.15 am.
On May 29, DGMOs of both countries agreed to implement the ceasefire pact of 2003 in “letter and spirit.”
Inspector General of BSF, Ram Awtar said, “The ceasefire violation by Pakistan after the recent DGMO level talks between New Delhi and Islamabad again proved that the neighbouring country’s words did not match its deeds. It is saying something but doing something else. The latest incident proved it once again, he said.”
Persons injured in the Pakistan shelling were evacuated and shifted to hospital.
Thousands of people residing in Jammu, Kathua and Samba districts along the IB were evacuated last month from their homes after intense shelling from Pakistan, which left 12 people dead and many injured.
