Three Pak Rangers killed after BSF retaliates to cross-border firing


New Delhi: At least three Pakistani Rangers were killed on Saturday when BSF jawans retaliated after a cross-border firing along the international border in Jammu, an official said.

The incident took place along the border in Dewra village in Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

BSF gave a ‘befitting’ reply to the Pak rangers following their unprovoked firing around 3 pm, PTI quoted an officer as saying.

 At least half-a-dozen mortar shells were fired at the Dewra village by the Pak Rangers, a BSF spokesperson said.

“The force retaliated strongly during cross-border firing and shot dead at least three Pakistan Rangers,” he added.
