Srinagar: A BSF jawan died and another went missing after they slipped from a mountain ridge in Macchil sector near Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, a senior official of the force said today.
"The two jawans slipped into a deep gorge on Friday afternoon in Macchil sector," the BSF official said.
While one jawan was rescued by his colleagues in an injured condition, the official said the other jawan is still untraceable.

He said efforts were on to trace the other jawan, Satish Kumar, but rescue operation is getting hampered due to inclement weather.
