The BSF destroyed a Pakistani bunker that led to the killing of these two Pakistani Rangers.
Earlier, a BSF soldier was killed when Pakistani troops breached border ceasefire and fired on border guards in RS Pura sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday.
We retaliated effectively which led to damage on that (Pakistan) side. BSF never starts it but when they do, we make sure we take strong action.
