"Sub-inspector Jitender Singh of the 68 BSF battalion was injured in sniper fire from across the International Border at Manayari post of Hira Nagar sector in Samba district.
"The injured BSF officer is being shifted to the government medical college hospital in Jammu city," the police officer said.
India has been accusing Pakistan since the beginning of this year of frequent violations of bilateral ceasefire signed between the two countries in November 2003.
However, the Line of Control (LoC) and the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir have remained peaceful during the last two months.
A flag meeting was Wednesday held between the Indian and Pakistan army battalion commanders at Chakan-Da-Bagh cross-point in Poonch district in the state to ensure that the ceasefire agreement is observed in letter and spirit.
