BSF jawan injured in ceasefire violation in Rajouri district of J&K

Srinagar: One Border Security Force (BSF) jawan as injured on Friday when Pakistani troops once again violated ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir.

“At 10 AM, a BSF constable deployed at a forward location at LoC in Bhimbher Gali sector of Rajouri district sustained an injury due to single round fire (sniper fire) from Pakistan Forward Defence location”, news agency PTI quoted a senior BSF officer as saying.
