NEW DELHI: The BSF jawans were in a jubilant mood over the Indian victory in the thrilling Asian Games hockey final against Pakistan in Incheon when Pak Rangers opened the first fire on a BSF Naka at 8 pm on October 2 in Arnia sector of Jammu district.
When a BSF sub-inspector raised a white flag and shouted aloud asking the Pak Rangers across the post why they were firing unprovoked, they replied that the “accidental” firing came from “some infighting going on between rival groups in residential areas”, according to sources . Soon, the BSF raised protest over their claim saying no infighting could cause such a heavy firing, sources told Express.
However, the firing ceased for a few hours, but by 11 pm, it resumed as heavy shelling targeted BSF posts and civilian areas. “We retaliated only after midnight when heavy firing continued for a few hours. There was communication after October 2, but on Thursday a protest note has been exchanged,” BSF sources added.
