Jammu, Jan 6: The Border Security Force (BSF) will retaliate without fail if its troops are fired at by Pakistani forces, BSF Director General D.K. Pathak said on Tuesday.
"Prevalence of peace (is the) best situation. But if Pakistan does not want peace, if firing comes from their side, we will definitely respond," he told the media.
"We cannot go on taking bullets," Pathak added, after paying tributes to a BSF trooper killed in Pakistani firing.
Pathak said the BSF never targeted civilian areas. "But they always fire first and target our civilian areas."
