Jammu and Kashmir: BSF soldier dies in ceasefire violation by Pakistan

New Delhi, Jan 3:  In yet another ceasefire violation by Pakistan, a BSF jawan was killed in Pakistan firing in the Samba sector near the Indo-Pakistan border.

Wednesday was supposed to be a special day for Border Security Force (BSF) head constable Radha Pad Hazra – his 51st birthday.

But as he walked towards his post at Dulma Chak in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba sector, little did he know this would be the last day of his life.

At about 4:35 pm, Pakistan began unprovoked firing towards Dulma Chak manned by BSF's 173 Battalion. 

Responding to the indiscriminate firing, BSF troopers retaliated and opened fire. 

As the firing continued from both sides, Hazra got shot. He was immediately shifted to DH Samba hospital, but doctors declared him brought dead.
