The BSF jawan Gurnam Singh, who was injured in Saturday’s crossborder fire in the Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir, succumbed to his injuries at night. The 26-year-old jawan had been undergoing treatment at the Government Medical College and Hospital in Jammu. According to news agency PTI, Singh died at around 11.45 pm.

Air ambulance facility for bringing him to AIIMS (New Delhi) was not provided, alleged the relatives.

In Jammu, people paid tribute to Gurnam Singh. He died after succumbing to his injuries.

“Bullet had hit Gurnam Singh’s head, and he was being treated in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), senior doctors were observing”, said CMO Rajinder Thappa, reported ANI.

Speaking to ANI, the BSF jawan’s father, Kulraj Singh, said, “We want a good hospital to be in place, where all essential facilities will be present. Our son has sacrificed his life for the nation,nobody is sad..infact we’re all happy.”

The Pakistani snipers had targeted him on Saturday as he was involved in foiling a major infiltration bid along the international border in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir.
Seven personnel of Pakistani Rangers, the border force of Pakistan, and a terrorist were killed when BSF retaliated against a ceasefire violation in which Gurnam was injured.
