He is survived by his wife Sushmita Singh, according to the BSF spokesman.

Authorities have kept emergency services in readiness to meet any eventuality due to the unprovoked ceasefire violation by Pakistan. Eyewitnesses told DH over phone that the firing created panic in nearby villages as mortar shells from across the border landed near residential areas.
