Mizoram: BSF Jawan's Homecoming: Mizoram Awaits Arrival of Brave Son
BSF Jawan Martyred in Ceasefire Violation: India Responds Firmly to Pakistani Aggression
Srinagar: In a tragic incident along the international border in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district, Border Security Force (BSF) Head Constable Lal Fam Kima, hailing from Aizwal in Mizoram, lost his life in unprovoked firing by Pakistan Rangers. The incident marks the third ceasefire violation in the past three weeks.

The BSF swiftly responded to the aggression from the Pakistani side, asserting their commitment to safeguarding India's borders. Head Constable Kima, aged 50, succumbed to critical injuries sustained during the firing, which occurred in the Ramgarh sector in Samba last night. Despite immediate medical attention, he passed away this morning.

Originally hailing from Phuaibuang village in the Saitual district, Kima, along with his family, resided in Aizawl's Durtlang locality. Survived by his wife and three children, Kima's tragic demise highlights the profound sacrifices made by Indian border forces.

The exchange of fire erupted around 12:20 a.m. when Pakistani Rangers initiated unprovoked firing. Despite the valiant response from Indian forces, Kima succumbed to critical injuries. The incident serves as a somber reminder of the persistent security challenges along the border.

The official statement from the BSF highlighted the valiant response of Indian troops to the unprovoked firing, emphasizing the force's dedication to preserving the nation's security.

This unfortunate incident follows a pattern of recent provocations from Pakistan. On October 27, Pakistani troops engaged in heavy gunfire and mortar shelling in the Arnia sector, forcing villagers to evacuate their homes. Three individuals, including two BSF personnel, were injured during the assault.

Similarly, on October 17, firing erupted in the Arnia sector, resulting in injuries to two BSF personnel. The situation was eventually brought under control through a flag meeting between local commanders of BSF and Pakistan Rangers.

These recurrent instances of cross-border firing blatantly violate the ceasefire agreement established between India and Pakistan in February 2021. The BSF, mourning the loss of Head Constable Kima, posted a tribute on social media, expressing solidarity with his family during this challenging time.
