"After the completion of cultivation (season), sniping and cross border firing is a usual thing and the latest incidents are the part of this phenomenon", the BSF chief said.
Pakistani troops resorted to unprovoked and indiscriminate firing on forward posts in the Manguchak area around 11.30 pm on Monday night and was effectively retaliated by the jawans guarding the IB, the officer said seeking anonymity.
"Based on the revelations made by two persons who were apprehended by Special Task Force Ludhiana, a special joint search operation was launched by the troops of Border Security Force and Special Task Force, Ludhiana, Punjab Police, in the area".
The jawan, later identified as constable Devendra Singh was rushed to Military Hospital but died of his bullet injuries.
The incident at the IB comes barely 24 hours after the BSF noticed suspicious movement of 5 persons, believed to be terrorists, attempting to cross into India from along the IB in Hiranagar sector of nearby Kathua district, resulting in a massive search 2-day operation.
