Srinagar, Oct 23 Heart-touching tributes have poured in for young solider, BSF jawan Gurnam Singh, who died after being shot and severely injured by Pakistani snipers on Saturday.
26-year-old Singh was injured on Friday's attack by Pakistani forces at the international border in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir.
He was injured when Pakistani snipers targeted him as he was instrumental in foiling a major infiltration bid along the international border in Kathua.
Seven personnel of Pakistani Rangers, the border force of Pakistan, and a terrorist were killed when BSF retaliated against a ceasefire violation in which Gurnam was injured.
