The unprecedented and brutal incident took place in the Ramgarh sector on Tuesday around 10:30 pm in unprovoked firing by Pakistan. The security forces have issued a "high alert" across the entire IB and the Line of Control (LoC).
Sources, as quoted by PTI, said that the body of the BSF jawan could only be retrieved from a spot ahead of the Indo-Pak fence after over six hours as the Pakistani side "did not respond" to the calls to maintain the sanctity of the frontier and ensure that the BSF search parties were not fired upon.
