BSF on Friday said it had killed 7 personnel of Pakistani Rangers and a terrorist while retaliating to a ceasefire violation on the International Border in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir in which one BSF jawan was injured. Pakistan Rangers, the border force of Pakistan, resorted to sniper attacks at Indian posts at Hira Nagar in Kathua at around 9.35 AM, BSF said.

The Indian border guarding force launched an aggressive offensive against the Pakistani firing, BSF said in a release, adding seven Rangers and a terrorist were shot dead in the retaliatory firing. Seeking to suggest that the killings had been corroborated by Pakistani media, the BSF said “source input” claimed that a media organisation in that country was running a news item about death of 5 Rangers.

Meanwhile, Pakistan has denied Indian claims of killing any Pakistan Ranger.

    If Pak wants to be in peace, they shd forget the K word and be within limits. India"s fight is against terror which Pak is the mother bed. If you remove all terror camps, nuetralise all terrorist, its ok, or else we will do it.

            Indian express doesn't mind publishing cements from anti-nationals. But they started deleting comments from Nationalists. I.E., You should be ashamed of your activities.

                            What proof do they have? Let LIC give free life insurances for all the stani soldiers ,which will be then claimed by the victims families with proofs. The funding for the same will be arranged by Kejriwal, Raga, Om Puri,...and other doubters. LIC could contribute the commissions to army fund.The premium will be heavy ,considering the free reign given to the armed forces.
