Trooper killed in Pakistan firing along IB in Jammu sector

India too has been looking to use hi-tech surveillance equipment to ensure Pakistani forces are unable to provide mortar-fire cover to terrorists attempting to sneak into India. Their number is five and HSTI recording also shows it's a five-member group.

I am sure that they will be detected and neutralised, Sharma said.

The heavy firing reportedly continued for an hour during which Constable Devender was hit by a stray bullet through a loophole of his picket.

"Alert troops noticed some suspicious movement on the IB".

The infiltration bid in the Manguchak border outpost area was scuttled by the alert personnel, Sharma told reporters after attending a wreath laying ceremony of the deceased jawan at the BSF headquarters here. "An illumination bomb was sacked at the site and troops opened fire". But after some time their movement was noticed again.

A Border Security Force (BSF) constable, identified as Devender Kumar, was killed in a ceasefire violation by the Pakistani Army along the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district, a senior BSF official said on Tuesday.

He said intermittent firing between the two sides was still continuing when last reports were received.

Sharma said Pakistan is their hostile neighbour which always is in a process to infiltrate terrorists into this side.

The Pakistan Army allegedly violated ceasefire along the border in Samba district on Tuesday. "We will take appropriate action", he said.
