In a cease fire violation made by Pakistan on Saturday morning, constable Nitin Subhash lost his life in Machil sector while retaliating to the ceasefire violations.

The fresh casualty came hours after terrorists, aided by the cover fire by Pakistani Army, last night crossed the Line of Control in the sector. They killed an Indian army jawan and mutilated his body prompting the Indian army to warn that “the incident will be responded to appropriately”.

As per Border Security Force, Pakistan violated ceasefire by using mortar shells in Kathua sector of J&K at around 7:20 AM on Saturday.

“BSF retaliated with small arms. No casualties,” said BSF in a statement.
