"This time Pakistan also opened fire and in the cross-border firing constable Devender Singh attained martyrdom", said Sharma.

He said this (infiltration attempts and Pakistani firing) was a "very serious incident" because it had happened ahead of the scheduled visit of prime minister to the state on 19 May.

A Border Security Force (BSF) constable, identified as Devender Kumar, was killed in a ceasefire violation by the Pakistani Army along the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district, a senior BSF official said on Tuesday.
