A Border Security Force trooper was killed on Friday after Pakistani rangers violated the ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir's Arnia sub-sector. They said the action came after three Indian jawans were injured in "unprovoked" firing and shelling by Pakistani troops along the IB and the LoC in Jammu and Poonch districts on Wednesday.

"Retaliatory fire by BSF killed 2 Pak soldiers", it further said.

Pakistan has been resorting to cease fire violations. They are utilizing mortars, automatics and little arms to target nine BSF posts in Arnia.

The deceased BSF jawan has been identified as constable Brijender Bahadur Singh.

A bullet hit the jawan on the left side of his abdomen and he succumbed to injuries on the way to hospital, the spokesman said. "BSF troopers are retaliating strongly and effectively", BSF sources were quoted as saying by the IANS news agency.
