Jammu/New Delhi: A BSF soldier, who went missing from a forward area along the Indo-Pak international border in Jammu early Tuesday, was found dead, officials said.

They said the head constable rank soldier is suspected to have been hit by a fatal sniper shot from across the border when troops were clearing the tall ‘sarkanda’ grass ahead of their border post in the RS Pora area.

“The body of the soldier has been found by a search party. It is suspected that he was shot with a precise aim by the Pakistani side when they were clearing the area near the fence,” a senior official said. PTI
