The deceased BSF jawan has been identified as constable Brijender Bahadur Singh.
It is learnt that the Pakistani Rangers resorted to unprovoked mortar shelling and gun fire along the International Border in Arnia near Jammu shortly after midnight on Thursday night following which three other BSF outposts - SM Base, Budwar and Nikkowal - were targeted in quick succession.
