Two Indian Soldiers Killed in Pakistan Forces’ Cross-Firing

At least two Indian soldiers were killed in fresh Pakistani forces’ cross firing in Kashmir, NDTV reported on Sunday.

"The firing from across the border in violation of the ceasefire agreement prompted a strong and effective retaliation by the BSF," the officer said.

Less than a week after the Director General of Military Operations or DGMOs of India and Pakistan agreed to implement the ceasefire pact of 2003 in "letter and spirit", Pakistani rangers resorted to unprovoked and indiscriminate firing along the International border in Jammu on Sunday killing two soldiers of the Border Security Force or BSF, according to the report.

The firing in the Pragwal area of Jammu's Akhnoor sector started early Sunday morning, officials said. "The unprovoked firing resulted in critical injuries to two Border Security Force soldiers manning a forward post," a senior officer of the BSF told news agency PTI.

He said both the soldiers, including an assistant sub-inspector, succumbed to their injuries later at a hospital while undergoing treatment.

"The firing from across the border in violation of the ceasefire agreement prompted a strong and effective retaliation by the BSF," the officer said. The cross-border firing was going on when last reports came in, he added.

On May 29, the DGMOs of India and Pakistan agreed to "fully implement" the ceasefire pact of 2003 in "letter and spirit" to stop border skirmishes in Jammu and Kashmir.
