"At about 8:30 AM, there was heavy firing from Pakistani (army) posts at BSF posts along the LoC in Krishnagati sector of Poonch district with rockets and automatic weapons," the officer told PTI.
Another BSF jawan was injured in the firing.
Troops guarding the borderline retaliated effectively, the officer said.
