BSF Director General KK Sharma, who is set to retire from the post, said on Friday that Pakistani military had become ‘more aggressive’ since Imran Khan became the Prime Minister. Referring to the brutal killing of BSF Head Constable Narender Singh on September 18 in Ramgarh sector along the International Border, General Sharma said, “Our party found the body. The feet were tied. There were three bullet wounds on the chest and there was a slit mark on the throat.” General Sharma added, “This happened after Imran Khan took over as Prime Minister”.
Sharma told reporters that his troops were waiting for the right time to strike back against the enemy in retaliation to the killing of their jawan. He also referred to the killing as a Border Action Team operation. “Nothing has changed on the border. Now we are witnessing BAT action on the International Border which never happened earlier. Generally, BAT action happens at the LoC. There is more aggressive stance from the other side compared to the past,” General Sharma added. “We are taking precautions to avoid such incidents,” BSF chief said.
