On a day when India is celebrating two years of the September 29 surgical strike carried out by the Indian Army, the Border Security Force (BSF) inflicted casualties on Pakistan side by carrying out heavy mortar shelling along the Line of Control.

New Delhi, September 28: Director General of Border Security Force (BSF) today confirmed that Pakistan Border Action Team (BAT) killed Head Constable Narender Kumar along the International border near Jammu earlier this September. While interacting with media, outgoing DG, BSF KK Sharma said, there are terror launchpads within five to seven kilometres near the IB. He further added that the borders with Pakistan would be more secure in future. He also stated, "This technology is foolproof, no doubt about it. It's only 11 km now but borders with Pakistan & Bangladesh are more than 6500 km. In the future, our borders will be more secure."
BSF Head Constable Narender Kumar was murdered by Pakistan Rangers on the night of September 18. The mutilated body of Kumar was found hours after Pakistan started an unprovoked firing in Ramgarh sector of Jammu on the patrolling party which went ahead for clearing elephant grass or 'Sarkanda'. Kumar's throat was slit while his eyes were gouged out.

After the incident, Home Minister Rajnath Singh gave free hand to the BSF to avenge the death of Kumar. The BSF head constable's son Mohit Kumar sought justice from the authorities. The BSF had raised the issue of killing of the jawan with the Pakistan Rangers at the sector level. However, Pakistan denied the role in Kumar's killing.
