Pak troops plead for ‘ceasefire’ after BSF destroys assets across IB
Author: Desk May 21, 2018
The Border Security Force (BSF) on Sunday said that the Pakistan Rangers “pleaded” with them to stop firing along the IB after being pounded with heavy artillery and heavy damage that also left a trooper dead across the border.
The border guarding force also released a 19-second thermal-imagery footage showing the destruction of a Pakistani picket across the border in retaliation to the unprovoked firing and shelling along the international boundary on May 19.
“(Pakistan) Rangers called up Jammu BSF formation today and beseeched to stop firing,” a BSF spokesman said. “The befitting reply by BSF units to the unprovoked shelling and firing across the IB by Pakistani forces has forced them to plead for ceasefire,” a senior official said. “For the last three days, the precision fire of BSF troopers on Pakistani firing locations inflicted heavy losses and yesterday this firing found their mark with one of the rangers in chicken neck area,” the official said.
