Four BSF soldiers were grievously injured in the attack.

The fallen BSF men - three of whom were from Rajasthan - were identified as Assistant Commandant Jitendra Singh, Sub Inspector Rajneesh Kumar, Assistant Sub Inspector Ramniwas and Constable Hansraj.

Expressing concern over the rising incidents of terror attacks during the unilateral ceasefire announced by the Centre during the holy month of Ramzan, National Conference vice-president and former chief minister Omar Abdullah tweeted: "With the militant organisations doing their best to make sure the ceasefire is a failure they will only have themselves to blame if the security forces come back at them even harder when the ceasefire ends". "If they can return from their previous hostile positions of attacking each other, Pakistan and India can also resume composite dialogue", he said.

On May 29, the DGMOs of India and Pakistan agreed to "fully implement" the ceasefire pact of 2003 in "letter and spirit" forthwith to stop border skirmishes in J&K. Tension has again gripped the International Border after a brief lull.

Three others were also injured in the Pakistan firing in Jammu's Ramgarh Sector last night. "We have lost four of our personnel, including an assistant commandant-rank officer, while three of our personnel suffered injuries", Inspector General, BSF (Jammu Frontier) Ram Awtar told PTI.
