Pakistan Rangers fire at Indian border post, 4 BSF personnel killed

UN rights chief calls for major probe into Kashmir abuses

Notwithstanding the recent pledges to adhere to the ceasefire agreement, Pakistan Rangers resorted to fresh firing on Tuesday night, killing four Border Security Force (BSF) personnel and injuring three others on the International Border (IB) in Jammu's Ramgarh sector.

Earlier in the day, BSF Jammu frontier inspector general Ram Awtar said, "It was not a Border Action Team (BAT) attack but cross-border firing".

A BSF spokesman identified the martyred BSF personnel as Assistant Commandant Jitender Singh, Sub-Inspector Rajneesh, Assistant Sub-Inspector Ramniwas and Constable Hansraj.

The BSF ADG said that it was very unfortunate and "the ceasefire announcement made and agreed is to be honoured".

Pakistan Rangers usually offer a chaddar and candies on behalf of the people of Pakistan and BSF in turn gives them "shakkar" (holy soil) and sherbet from the shrine, which many believe, cures skin related ailments.

Three others were also injured in the Pakistan firing in Jammu's Ramgarh Sector last night.

"Four BSF jawan including an assistant commandment martyred in Chamliyal area". Tension has again gripped the International Border after a brief lull. Sub Inspector Rajneesh Kumar, who was born in 1986 and joined BSF in 2012 hails from Etah in UP.

Indian troops on Tuesday shot dead a resident of a border village of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) in the latest incident of unprovoked ceasefire violation, residents and officials said.

This is the second major ceasefire violation along the IB this month and came despite Director General Military Operations (DGMO) of the two countries agreeing on May 29 to implement the ceasefire pact of 2003 in "letter and spirit".

Two days after that, an elderly woman and a minor girl were killed and 24 others were injured in heavy mortar shelling along the Working Boundary in Sialkot district.

Rising incidents of attacks on security forces with grenades during the Centre's unilateral ceasefire during Ramzan is causing concern ahead of the Amarnath pilgrimage starting on 28 June. There had been two meetings of sector commanders of BSF and Pakistan Rangers too who had resolved to strictly maintain the ceasefire.

A similar truce was agreed upon on May 21, after a wave of ceasefire violations left two BSF jawans and four civilians dead.

The Pakistani side gave an assurance that they would not initiate any cross-border firing and the BSF reciprocated by saying that it would only retaliate when provoked.
