Border Security Forces (BSF) jawan Gurnam Singh, who was injured in Friday’s firing from the Pakistani forces, has been martyred.
The martyred BSF jawan Gurnam Singh made the supreme sacrifice of his life at an age of just 26.
Gurnam Singh was specifically attacked by the Pakistani Rangers through sniper fire after the former was successful in foiling an infiltration bid.
His colleagues on the ground had trouble in evacuating him to safety amid continued firing from the Pakistanis. It eventually needed cover fire to take out the injured Gurnam Singh from the site.
With bullet injuries, Gurnam Singh was rushed to the Government Medical College and Hospital in Jammu on Saturday. He was pronounced dead around 11:45 PM on Saturday.
In the subsequent BSF retaliatory attack which took place at the at the international border in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian side claimed to have killed seven Pakistani army personnel along with one terrorist.
Yesterday, Gurnam Singh’s sister made an appeal to the government to take him abroad for treatment or fly in team of foreign doctors to bring him out of critical condition. Her appeal fell on deaf ears though with the brave BSF soldier succumbing to his bullet injuries in a government hospital.
Pakistan has upped its ceasefire violations across the border in a bid to push in more terrorists into the Indian Territory.
The Indian security forces are seething with anger, waiting for proper orders to make the Pakistanis pay for their crimes of using terror and unprovoked firing to attack them on a daily basis.
