The Indian army on Wednesday lodged a strong protest with the Pakistani military over ceasefire violations along the border in Jammu, where a mutilated body of a BSF soldier was found on Tuesday after brief exchange of fire between armies of two nuclear neighbours.
Defence sources said that India's Director General of Military Operations (DGMO), Lt Gen Anil Chauhan spoke on phone with his Pakistani counterpart to register the protest over ceasefire violations and raise the issue of BSF jawan. He asked Pakistan not to repeat such incidents, which adversely affects the tranquillity and peace on border.
Earlier, a mutilated body of a head constable of BSF Narender Kumar from Sonepat, Haryana was found along border in Ramgarh sub-sector of Samba district on Tuesday.
Kumar was part of a four-member team tasked to cut Sarkanda (wild grass) along the fence, when Pakistan Rangers violated ceasefire and killed him, however his body was found after 10 hours.
"The BSF solider was reportedly throat-slit after being fired from close range, resulting precision fire on right side of his chest and on left leg," top BSF officials said.
However, the BSF said that jawan was killed due to bullet injures after being targeted by Pak Rangers.
