New Delhi, Oct 30 (IBNS): Pakistan on Thursday summoned the Indian acting high commissioner to lodge a protest over the killing of an inadvertent crosser by India’s border-guarding agency Border Security Force (BSF), media reports said.

The incident took place at Tashpura Post when Touqeer, son of Shabbir, along with two others was cutting grass in Shakargarh, Narowal.

A statement issued by Pakistan said they inadvertently crossed the international border.

“Indian BSF troops fired without any warning, injuring Touqeer, while the other two managed to return. Immediately, a Company Commander level contact was established by Pakistan Rangers to take over the injured Pakistani, but the BSF troops refused and took the injured across the fence. Later, he passed away in the custody of BSF troops” the statement said, as quoted in media reports, condemning the actions of the BSF troops.

The statement also pointed out that another civilian Muhammad Din, son of Sultan, was killed by the Indian troops in Rawlakot near the Line of Control on Wednesday. It also reminded that earlier an inadvertent crosser, Kala Khan, was shot dead by the Indian security forces on the LoC in August 2014, sources said.
