The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) on Sunday claimed to have attacked Pakistani bunkers near the Working Boundary (WB), martyring one soldier, Times of India reported.
BSF also released a 19-second thermal imagery footage showing the attack across the border.
A BSF spokesperson said that Pakistan Rangers called up BSF and asked them to stop firing.
“For the last three days, the precision fire of BSF troopers on Pakistani firing locations inflicted heavy losses and yesterday, one Pakistani soldier was in the chicken neck area,” the official said.
The BSF claimed to have lost two of its soldiers in firing incidents near the WB over the last few days.
According to BSF’s claims, a number of civilians were also killed and injured in the Jammu area in recent firing incidents which appeared to have increased in the wake of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s day-long visit to Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) on Saturday.
Over 700 incidents of fire and shelling were reported, which left 38 people, including 18 security personnel dead and scores injured, BSF claimed.
