Befitting reply being given to Pak firing: BSF DG

Chandigarh, July 1: BSF troopers are giving a befitting reply to unprovoked firing from Pakistan on the international border in Jammu and Kashmir, Border Security Force Director General K.K. Sharma said on Sunday. “They (Pakistan) keep indulging in ceasefire violations from time to time. They also snipe at our men. Despite of all these operational challenges, the BSF has given them a befitting reply,” he told media here after laying the foundation stone of the headquarters of BSF’s Special Director General, Western Command. “We have a free hand always and we have given a befitting reply on all the occasions. On each occasion, we have inflicted more casualties on the other side (Pakistani Rangers). I would like to make one thing clear that we never initiate ceasefire violations and it is the other side which starts as a result of which we have to retaliate and react. “On the Pakistan side, we know that we have a hostile neighbour. We know they keep on trying to infiltrate militants,” he said. (IANS)
