Srinagar: The Border Security Force (BSF) jawan, Gurnam Singh, who was injured in the cross border firing in the Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir, succumbed to injuries at around 2300 hours on Saturday.

The 26-year-old jawan was undergoing treatment at the Government Medical College and Hospital here.

According to the Chief Medical officer, Dr Rajinder Thappa,"Gurnam's parents wanted to shift him to AIIMS for better treatment but unfortunately he lost his life before he could be shifted." He further said ,"Bullets had hit the head of Gurnam Singh and he was being treated in the Intensive care Unit. He was kept under observation of senior doctors but could not be saved."

It may be mentioned that some Pakistani snipers targeted the soldier on Saturday last as he was involved in major infiltration bid along the international border in Kathua district.

Seven personnel of Pakistani rangers who belonged to the Border force of Pakistan along with a terrorist were killed when BSF retaliated against the ceasefire.
