Violating the ceasefire yet again, Pakistani troops fired at a forward Indian border outpost along the border in Jammu on Tuesday morning, killing a Border Security Force jawan.

Pakistani troops fired at the Chak Sagwari border outpost in Paragwal sector, 20 kms from Jammu, at approximately 6.15 am, BSF officials said.

BSF jawan Sultan Ali was killed in the firing. Indian troops guarding the border retaliated and the firing ended at around 6.30 am.

There have been many ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops this year. Pakistani troops had last violated the ceasefire on June 21 when they fired at a forward outpost along the International Border in Jammu where the BSF foiled an infiltration bid by militants.
