Jammu: A BSF jawan was on Saturday night killed in an exchange of fire with Pakistani troops in Jammu sector along the International Border.

A senior BSF official Pakistani snipers fired on a patrolling party of BSF along the international border in Budhwar area of Suchetgarh sub-sector, 45km from here.

BSF jawans guarding the border retaliated, triggering an exchange of fire for about 15 minutes in which one BSF jawan identified as Jai Kishan of 193 batallion was killed, he said.

It is the fourth incident of firing by Pakistani troops along the Indo-Pak border in less than a month.

Earlier on May 5, there was a ceasefire violation when Pakistani troops had fired rockets on Indian position and opened indiscriminate firing along the Line of Control in Poonch district.

Two more such incidents took place along the LOC in Poonch on April 22 and April 22.
