"BSF jawans retaliated by firing with AMR (Anti Material Rifle), AGS (Automatic Grenade Launching System) and MMG targeting Pak forward posts". A militants was also killed in this operation. "The menace of terrorism, which has been unleashed on the soil of Pakistan is going to sooner or later devour and consume the perpetrators itself", Singh said.
