A Border Security Force (BSF) jawan allegedly opened fire at a force camp here on Sunday, leaving four of his colleagues dead and another injured. The accused constable was also killed in this fratricidal incident that took place between 9:30 and 9:45 am at the camp of the 144th battalion in the Khasa area of the district, about 12-13 Km short of the Attari-Wagah border crossing along the Indo-Pak border.
The accused constable was identified as Sateppa SK and it is not clear that whether the accused jawan shot himself or was shot by others.
Officials reported that the accused constable was apparently upset about his duty hours and even fired shots at the vehicle of the second-in-command-rank officer parked in the campus.
A BSF spokesperson said that in an unfortunate incident, five BSF troops were killed at a force camp in Amritsar in a fratricidal incident.
