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.

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.
