The BSF do not agree the ‘friendly fire’ reports. This is because it has caused casualties on the Baramulla camp during this attack and the speculation has resulted in tense nerves.
The border force informs terrorists attack at a joint Army-BSF camp and it has claimed one BSF trooper’s life, while another was injured. Thus, BSF DG K K Sharma does not accept the reports of any ‘friendly fire’. BSF officials adjoining the Army’s camp at the base in Baramulla;s Janbazpora informed the incident appears like terrorists shoot and scoot attack and there was nothing as friendly fire.
The BSF said, we are fighting terrorist Pakistan for our security and for humanity. The BSF’s 40th battalion sentry noticed suspicious movement close to the open kitchen area and began firing considering that terrorists may have entered the camp, said the sources. This suddenly had a reaction in the nearby Army camp that had troops of 46 Rashtriya Rifles and they also opened fire in the direction where the suspected terrorists were assumed to have been.
The firing continued and there was no clarity on whether terrorists entered the camp or the firing was done from outside. After a firing of 90 minutes, illuminators used light up the sky and found no terrorists, sources said. The BSF say the terrorists fled in the darkness. They do not agree it was a friendly fire and now that one of the troopers was killed and another injured, they see not friendship.
