BSF jawan Gurnam Singh, injured in Pak firing, succumbs to injuries

Border Security Force jawan Gurnam Singh, who was injured in ceasefire violation by Pakistani forces at the international border in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday, succumbed to his injuries last night.

26-year-old Singh, who was undergoing treatment at the Government Medical College and Hospital here, died at around 11.45 PM, police said.

He was injured when Pakistani snipers targeted him as he was instrumental in foiling a major infiltration bid along the international border in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir.

 
 
Seven personnel of Pakistani Rangers, the border force of Pakistan, and a terrorist were killed when BSF retaliated against a ceasefire violation in which Gurnam was injured.

Earlier on Friday morning, his sister requested the Indian government to take him abroad for the treatment as his condition was serious.
