Pak not trustworthy, targetted civilians: IG BSF
KT NEWS SERVICE
JAMMU, Jun 3: Inspector General of BSF Jammu Frontier Ram Awtar on Sunday said that Pakistan has yet again ‘proved that it cannot be trusted upon as it fired unprovoked and targetted the forward villages along international border in Jammu.”

“As you all know Pakistan never keep its words. It is not reliable and trustworthy and after DGMOs talks agreeing for ceasefire, Pakistan on Sunday morning fired unprovoked in our Pargwal and Kanachak areas,” Awtar here told reporters, at the sidelines of wreath laying ceremony of two BSF personnel, who were killed in cross border firing.

“It was not a sniping, but ceasefire violation, in which two of our jawans sustained injuries and later attained martyrdom. We have given a strong and befitting reply, but so far the damage across the border could not be ascertained. We did not target the civilian areas across the border, but only retaliated to cross border firing,” Awtar said, adding that there were no fresh inputs of attempt of infiltration, amid ceasefire violation.

He said, “There was a targeted fire on our duty mounds from across the international border which was helped by adjoining posts of Rangers. Two our men were martyred.” He also blamed Pakistan for dishonouring the ceasefire yet again.

“Following DGMOs talk we strictly adhered to ceasefire agreement but there is difference in words and deeds of Pakistan,” he said.

Minister for Power Development Sunil Kumar Sharma, MLA Bali Bhagat, Divisional Commissioner Jammu, Hemant Kumar Sharma, IGP Jammu Dr SD Singh, DIG Jammu Samba Kathua Range Rafiq-Ul-Hassan , ADC Jammu, Arun Manhas and other senior officers of civil administration, police, army and other paramilitary forces were also present and paid floral tributes to the martyred soldiers at Frontier Headquarters BSF Jammu.

The minister expressed grief over the killings and extended deep condolences to the bereaved families.
