New Delhi: A day after seven Pakistan Rangers personnel were killed in retaliation by the Border Security Force (BSF) in Jammu, sister of the injured jawan, Gurnam, appealed to the government for proper medical treatment for her brother.

The BSF constable was wounded in retaliation for a sniper attack along the international border in Kathua district on Friday.

Gurjeet Kaur, the sister of injured Gurnam, questioned the government on its apathy towards the woes of Indian security forces.

“He is in critical condition. Why can’t government take him abroad for treatment? When ministers go, why didn’t they take a soldier?” lamented Gurjeet.

Referring to Gurnam’s critical condition, she called for proper medical provision from the government.

“Why not call a team of foreign doctors? We are worried about his current condition,” said Gurjeet.

BSF had claimed that it launched an aggressive offensive in response to the sniper attack and gave a “befitting reply”, killing one militant and seven Pakistan Rangers personnel.
