Srinagar: A Border Security Force (BSF) trooper has been killed in Pakistan ceasefire violation in Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara district.
BSF spokesman said the Pakistan Army had resorted to sniper firing in Tangdhar area of the Line of Control (LoC) on Tuesday.
"Constable SK Murmu deployed at forward defence location (FDL) on the LoC, was hit in the firing. He was shifted to army's base hospital in Srinagar where he succumbed to his injuries late on Tuesday," he said.
This comes after army officials revealed that the new modus operandi to indoctrinate and train Kashmiri youth in militancy was to call them through proper visa channels, rather than having them take the risk of crossing the border illegally.
