It was not immediately clear whether the BSF personnel were killed last night or in the early morning

Four Border Security Forces (BSF) personnel were killed and three others injured in Pakistan's firing in Jammu's Ramgarh Sector on Tuesday night.

A Jammu-based BSF spokesman said Pakistan Rangers manning the Post Asraf started "unprovoked firing on the border outpost of the BSF at 9:40 p.m. in Ramgarh Sector on Tuesday".

Pakistan used flat and high trajectory weapons to inflict casualties on Indian side, said the spokesman.

Four BSF jawans were killed as "our men retaliated this unprovoked fire", he added.

The BSF identified the deceased jawans as Assistant Commandant Jitender Singh; sub inspector Rajneesh, assistant sub inspector Ramniwas, Constable Hansraj.

He said the injured BSF persons were evacuated to hospital for medical aid.

Last month, two BSF men were killed in Pakistan firing, leading to a fresh wave of ceasefire violations by Pakistan. India also retaliated the fire.
