NEW DELHI: Another Indian lie fell flat on Tuesday after claims of Pakistani involvement in the killing of an Indian soldier in Baramulla. According to Indian media reports, the Indian soldier was killed by ‘friendly fire’.
Director General Border Security Force (BSF) K.K. Sharma rejected the notion of ‘friendly fire’ but when questioned how his soldier was killed, what exactly happened in Baramulla, Sharma lost the plot responding that the Indian Army was in a better position to share details of how the BSF soldier met his death.
The Indian journalist followed up that the soldier who lost his life was a BSF constable, and Sharma as DG BSF should know how his soldier died.
Sharma responded that, the constable saw some suspicious movement and became alert, just then he was fired upon and then a grenade exploded next to his leg.
Did anyone see which direction the gunfire came from? Are there any witnessed the journalist followed up again. The DG responded that it was a moonless night and it was very dark so no one saw which direction the gunfire came from.
Grilling Sharma further the journalist pressed forward that media reports suggest the constable died due to ‘friendly fire’, to which the BSF Director General submitted that there was too much confusion, no one can say for certain which direction the gunfire came from or who fired upon the constable.
