JAMMU: Amid continuing ceasefire violations by Pakistani forces, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday reviewed the security situation along the International Boundary (IB) in Jammu where one BSF jawan was killed and three others were injured following heavy shelling and firing on the Indian side in the Jammu sector by Pakistan troops.
Singh, who is on a three-day official tour to Bahrain, spoke telephonically to the Director General of Border Security Force K K Sharma who apprised the minister about the situation along the IB.
“Spoke to DG BSF who apprised me of the situation in border areas of Jammu region. The BSF is capable of giving befitting reply. I salute the bravery and sacrifice of BSF jawan Sushil Kumar who was martyred in RS Pura sector of Jammu region last night,” Singh tweeted.
Following the surgical strike by Indian forces in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) in the wake of terror attack at Army base in Uri, the Pak troops have violated the ceasefire agreement over 40 times, leading to rising concerns within the security establishment.
