Pakistan has again proved that it cannot be trusted, a top Border Security Force (BSF) official said on Sunday.

“Pakistan has yet again proved that it cannot be trusted as its forces resorted to unprovoked shelling and firing to target villages along the international border,” said Ram Awtar, Inspector General (IG) BSF Jammu Frontier.

He was addressing the media on the sidelines of the wreath-laying ceremony to honour the two BSF troopers killed in Pakistani firing on Sunday.

“We know Pakistan never keeps its word. It is not reliable and trustworthy and even after the DGMOs agreed to respect the (2003) ceasefire, Pakistan on Sunday morning fired in Pargwal and Kanachak areas.”

The BSF official said the killing was not a sniper action but a blatant ceasefire violation.

“We have given a strong and befitting reply, but so far the damage across the border could not be ascertained. We did not target civilian areas. We only retaliated to cross border firing,” he said.
