NEW DELHI, Oct. 4 : The Indian BSF denied reports of "friendly fire" resulting in casualties during the terror attack on the Baramulla camp even as speculation swirled about tense nerves leading to firing late on Sunday night.
The border force said terrorists struck at a joint Army-BSF camp and this claimed the life of one BSF trooper while another was injured. BSF DG K K Sharma denied reports of any 'friendly fire'.
BSF officials at the base, adjoining the Army's camp in Baramulla's Janbazpora, said the incident appeared more like a "shoot and scoot" attack by terrorists.
The sentry of the BSF's 40th battalion noticed suspicious movement near the open kitchen area and started firing apprehending that terrorists may have entered the camp, sources said. This led to a reaction in the adjacent Army camp where troops of 46 Rashtriya Rifles also opened fire in the direction in which suspected terrorists were believed to have been.
The firing continued and it wasn't clear whether terrorists had entered the camp or the firing was from outside. After 90 minutes of firing, illuminators were used to light up the sky but no terrorist was found, sources said. The BSF said the terrorists fled in the darkness.
