Just days ahead of the second anniversary of the surgical strikes in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir in response to the Uri attack, Pakistan Rangers - the force that monitors the country’s international border with India - killed a jawan of the Border Security Force (BSF) and mutilated his body, Hindustan Times reports.

According to the report, the BSF recovered the badly mutilated body of the jawan along the fencing in Ramgarh sector of Samba on Tuesday evening.

The Pioneer reported that the eyes of BSF jawan, who was identified as head constable Narendra Kumar, were gouged out, neck was partially slit and the whole body had marks of burn injuries, including on chest and arms.

“An area domination patrol of the BSF was targeted by the Pakistan Rangers in Ramgarh sector around 10.40 am on Tuesday morning. The BSF jawans were engaged in the task of clearing wild grass to ensure clear vision. It is suspected the BAT team of the Pakistan Rangers ambushed  the BSF patrolling party after which one of the jawans went missing. The body  of the BSF jawan, injured in the unprovoked firing,  was found after massive search operations in the forward area late on Tuesday evening,” the BSF said in a statement released on Wednesday.

Reports said that soldiers from Pakistan could have dragged the jawan into their territory to mutilate his body after killing him.

The news of this development came when India was playing a cricket match against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates as part of the Asia Cup.
