In January earlier this year, residents of RS Pura Sector were forced to leave their homes in the wake of the cease-fire arrangement being repeatedly violated by Pakistan.

1991 born, constable Sitaram Upadhyay was inducted into the BSF in 2011. A BSF jawan was killed in the unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan Rangers who opened fire to provide cover to militants.

BSF troops guarding the borderline retaliated, he said.

A BSF jawan was among two persons injured when Pakistan Rangers shelled about 15 Border Out Posts and civilian areas along the International Border (IB) in Samba and Kathua districts of Jammu on Thursday.

Yesterday, a BSF officer was among two persons injured when Pakistan Rangers opened fire and lobbed mortars over BOPs and few civilian areas along the global border in Samba and Kathua districts of Jammu and Kashmir.

BSF constable Sita Ram Upadhyay was killed in Pakistani fire on Friday morning.

The incidents of unprovoked firing and attempts to infiltrate the IB have increased in the last few days even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to reach Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday as part of an official visit.

Pakistan Rangers shelled areas in R S Pura, Bishnah and Arnia sectors of Jammu by resorting to heavy mortar shelling and firing since 1:00 am in R S Pura, Bishnah sectors, a senior BSF officer told PTI. He is survived by a three-year-old daughter and a one-year-old son.

The incident reportedly happened in the early hours of Tuesday when Pakistani forces began unprovoked firing from across the LoC in the Samba sector.

Two civilians injured in ceasefire violation by Pakistan in RS Pura sector are undergoing treatment at a hospital.

The firing and mortar shelling along the IB in Samba district started around 2 am, while it started at around 10 PM last night in Kathua's Hiranagar sector.

It was followed by another infiltration bid in Samba sector but the same was foiled by the BSF jawans.

Schools within the 3-km radius of the global border, which often come under the cross-border firing, have been declared closed by the state administration.
