One Border Security Force (BSF) jawan was killed in the ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir's RS Pura sector on Friday, says media reports. One civilian too has been injured in the incident.

Parekh called the incident a violation of the 2003 ceasefire truce with Pakistan.

A bullet hit the man on the left side of his abdomen and he succumbed to injuries on the way to hospital, a BSF officer said. BSF sources said, "One BSF trooper has been killed in ceasefire violation by Pakistan rangers".

"BSF troops retaliated strongly and gave befitting reply", he said. Authorities are keeping vigilant with emergency services to meet any eventuality due to the unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan. Eyewitnesses told DH over phone that the firing created panic in nearby villages as mortar shells from across the border landed near residential areas.

Richardson, a former South African wicketkeeper batsman, said Pakistan had made a lot of progress on the security front. A Taliban suicide bomber killed 25 people in July in an attack that appeared to target Lahore's police force.

On the other hand, Pakistan has claimed that there have more than 700 ceasefire violations by the Indian troops this year, which resulted in the killing of 32 civilians on their side of the LoC.

Deputy Chief Minister Dr Nirmal Singh along with BSF officers and jawans paid floral tributes to the martyr at the BSF headquarters here.

BSF sources said Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing at their positions in Arnia sub-sector this morning.
