    Indian Soldier Killed in Pakistan Ceasefire Violation, BSF Kills 4 in Retaliatory Fire

    NEW DELHI: A Border Security Force (BSF) jawan was killed in unprovoked firing by Pakistan Rangers on the International Border in Samba district of Jammu region today, police said. BSF then opened retaliatory fire, in which four Pakistan Rangers have been killed.

    Sources have said BSF Director General DK Pathak has briefed Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. The BSF has claimed that the Pakistan Rangers sued for peace after the Indian side retaliated.

    The Pakistan Rangers raised white flags requesting the BSF to stop firing, so it could retrieve the bodies of its personnel killed in the retaliatory firing. BSF personnel complied, and the Rangers have retrieved two of the bodies, according to sources.

    "Pakistan Rangers resorted to unprovoked firing on the Regal border outpost of BSF in Samba district of Jammu region," a senior police officer said in Jammu, the winter capital of Jammu and Kashmir.

    Pakistani convicts on death row wait to infiltrate Kashmir in a mission of no return

    A new spectre haunts Kashmir. In a fresh low after the surgical strikes, a vengeful ISI and the Pakistan terror establishment plan to push convicted criminals into Jammu and Kashmir to carry out suicide attacks, says Indian intelligence. While 60-70 per cent of infiltrators belong to radical outfits like Jaish-e-Mohammad, Lashkar-e-Toiba and Hizbul Mujahideen, 30 per cent comprise mostly convicts sentenced to death or life for various heinous crimes. Pakistani Army trainers on “community service” brainwash them into believing that the Indian Army is perpetrating savage atrocities against Muslims in the Valley. They are told jihadis who sacrifice their lives for the Kashmiri cause will reach ‘jannat’ (paradise), said an official of the Multi-Agency Centre (MAC) in Srinagar. MAC is the intelligence sharing nodal centre formed after the Mumbai 26/11 attacks. He said some of the convicts are forced to have sex with HIV-infected women to rob them of all incentive to return. Before infiltration, jihadis are asked to shave their armpits and cut their nails since they should be clean upon arrival in heaven. Pakistani security forces threaten to kill anyone who tries to retreat. A maulana is present at launch pads to offer prayers for their journey to paradise. The jihadis have been ordered to become “martyrs” within the first 48 hours of infiltration so that they do not get time to assimilate with locals. “The mentors of the fidayeen apparently do not want them to see the reality on the ground in Kashmir,” the official said. All major terrorist attacks on the armed forces this year, including in Pathankot in January and Uri in September, were carried out within 48 hours of infiltration. According to MAC’s latest estimates, 300 fidayeen are waiting across the Line of Control (LoC) and the border to cross over. Security forces have accordingly changed tactics. While the Army and BSF have been directed to repulse all infiltration bids along the LoC and the border without mercy, forces engaged in the counter-insurgency grid of the Valley will eliminate an estimated 250 jihadis suspected to be hiding in the Valley.

    NEW DELHI: Pakistan provoked India yet again on Saturday evening with heavy firing on Indian posts and villages along the Line of Control (LoC) in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district in Jammu and Kashmir, the Army said.

    "There is an unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan army in Nowshera sector's Jhanger area from 1545 hrs on Saturday. They are firing 82 mm mortars, automatics and small arms. The Indian Army is responding befittingly to the enemy fire," Defence spokesperson said


    This is the fifth ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops in the region, he added.


    Last week, the UN observers group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) had said that they are investigating alleged ceasefire violations in the Pakistan occupied Kashmir, a UN official had said, describing the security situation across the Line of Control as "tense."

    "We've seen the alleged ceasefire violations over the Line of Control, which are currently being investigated by the UNMOGIP, in the Pakistani-administered side of the Line of Control at Domel, Kotli and Bhimber, where the security situation has, indeed, been tense," UN Secretary General's spokesman Stephane Dujarric had told reporters.

    Pakistan Army violates ceasefire along LoC, India retaliates
    PTIApr, 08 2017 20:48:52 IST

    Jammu: Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir by resorting to firing on forward posts on Saturday, drawing retaliation from Indian Army.

    "Pakistani Army fired indiscriminately from small arms and automatic weapons from 1545 hours today on Indian Army
    posts along the LoC in Noushera belt of Rajouri district," a defence spokesman said.

    Army troops deployed on forward posts retaliated and the exchange was continuing till last reports came in.

    This is the fifth violation of the ceasefire this month.

    On 5 April, Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire along the LoC in Poonch district by shelling forward posts with mortar bombs.

    On 4 April, Pakistani Army fired mortar shells on Indian Army posts along the LoC in Bhimbher Gali sector of Rajouri district.

    On 3 April, Pakistani troops had shelled mortar bombs on forward posts in Balakote sector of Rajouri district.

    In the second ceasefire violation on 3 April, Pakistani troops had shelled Indian posts along the LoC in Digwar area in Poonch sector.

    As per the reports, heavy mortar shelling in Digwar area has created a fear psychosis among the area dwellers. In the same area, a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO), Naib Subedar S Sanayaima Som, was killed by an improvise explosive device (IED) blast along the LoC in Poonch sector on 1 April.

    It may be recalled there were four violations of the ceasefire along the LoC in Poonch in March.

    On 9 March, army jawan Deepak Jagannath Ghadge was killed when Pakistani soldiers initiated indiscriminate and
    unprovoked firing along the LoC in Poonch.

    In 2016 there were 228 instances of ceasefire violation along the LoC, while there were 221 instances of ceasefire violation along the International Border (IB).

    Must be something to do with, with China's recent statement of protecting our Sovereignty.

    Pak Rushes Snipers To Target Indian Jawans
    Published April 20, 2017
    SOURCE : The Pioneer

    [​IMG]

    To counter Indian Army’s aggressive posture along the Line of Control Pakistan Army is learnt to have rushed ‘snipers’ (sharp shooters) to all its forward posts to target Indian jawans. In the last six months more than one dozen Indian soldiers have lost their lives in different sniping incidents.

    On Tuesday an Indian soldier deployed at a forward post in Bhimbder Gali area of Poonch was targeted from across the Line of Control by jawans of Pak Army’s 650 Mujahid.

    Defence Spokesman in Jammu, however, denied reports of sniping.

    These snipers remain parked at odd locations close to the forward posts to target Indian jawans proceeding on long patrols and forward locations.

    When border skirmishes peaked in the aftermath of Surgical strikes by the elite Indian commandos the jawans were even directed to use trenches to move between bunkers across all the forward posts. These instructions were given to the post commanders to minimise the risk factor. These instructions were issued after closely observing a pattern of sniper attacks by the Pak Army from across the LoC.

    Late monday night another Indian jawan lost his life in ‘accidental’ firing while he was moving through communication trench on the orders of post commander in Mendhar sector.

    In comparison to Indian Army, Pak Army relies more on their team of snipers to target enemy jawans.

    According to official sources not more than 2 snipers are attached with one Batallion deployed along the LoC.

    Indian snipers follow the simple mantra dushman shikar hum shikari, while keeping a watch on the movement of enemy posts from a forward location.

    Armed with high precision sniper rifle these sharp shooters are an asset of a unit deployed on the Line of Control. They have the capacity to shoot a target of 1,200 metres away and prevent any physical assault on own post.

    On the other hand snipers of Pak Army can target the forward Indian posts from a distance ranging between 1 km to 2 km using their high precision sniper rifles.

    In some areas Pak Army soldiers even enjoy the advantage of high altitude and can easily target routine movement of Indian jawans inside their posts.

    According to official sources, Sepoy Sudesh Kumar of 6 Rajput was killed by a Pak sniper, a fortnight after the surgical strikes on October 16. Kumar was on patrol duty along the LoC in Rajouri when he was hit by a sniper. A week later BSF jawan Gurnam Singh was killed along the Interna-

    tional border on October 21. He was shot in the head in Hiranagar sector, Jammu.

    Rifleman Sandeep Singh Rawat was hit in the neck, killing him instantly as he stood guard along the fence in the Kupwara sector on November 9, 2016.

    On March 9 this year, sepoy Deepak Jagannath Ghadge of Maharashtra died after he was hit by a similar sniper fire by Pakistani troops in Gulpur area of Poonch.

    On April 2, a JCO was killed in an IED blast near the LoC in Poonch district. It was suspected that the mine was planted by ‘rogue’ elements from Pakistan inside the Indian territory to inflict casualties.

    A few months ago, an internal report of the Army HQ had clearly stated, “Snipers are force multipliers to any infantry battalion. The high standard of sniper training and their imaginative employment leads to decisive and out-of-proportion results.”

    In view of the rising incidents of sniper fire from Pakistan, even the BSF has taken preventive measures such as placing nets in border outposts and observation posts.
