SRINAGAR: A Border Security Force (BSF) jawan was killed accidentally while retaliating to ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops in Macchil sector along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir‘s Kupwara district on Friday evening, the officials said here on Saturday.

The BSF said on Saturday that its constable Nitin Subhash while returning fire along the de facto border suffered grievous injuries when an explosion inside the chamber of the long range weapon recoiled.

 

BSF’s Inspector General (Kashmir range), Vikash Chandra, confirmed it saying, “sepoy Nitin Subhash was injured due to recoil and was admitted to a medical facility where he succumbed late last (Friday) night.”

Subhash, 28, a resident of Sangli in Maharashtra, had joined BSF in 2008 and is survived by his wife and two sons aged four and two years, a statement issued by the BSF here said.

During the past over one week, three BSF jawans were killed in the Pakistani firing and shelling along the IB with Pakistan in Jammu region. Four Army jawans too have died in the active hostilities between the facing armies which followed the surgical strikes conducted across the LoC by the Indian Army.
