In an attack near the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir an Indian soldier was killed and his body mutilated by terrorists on Friday. Meanwhile, the army has vowed take revenge, saying that the incident will be responded to appropriately.
According to the Indian army, in the attack, one terrorist was killed. The attack took place under cover fire provided by Pakistan army.
The army spokesperson said that in an encounter close to the Line of Control this evening, one soldier was martyred and one terrorist was killed. The terrorists mutilated the body of the jawan before fleeing back into Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir under the cover of firing by Pakistan army. The incident reflected the barbarism pervading in official and unofficial organisations in Pakistan.
Pakistan violated the ceasefire all of Thursday and Friday morning in Rajouri, Samba, Abdullia, RS Pura and Suchetgarh.
Three BSF soldiers have been killed in Pakistani shelling in the last five days.
Areas near the border have been on high alert because of a spurt in firing from Pakistan after Indian soldiers last month crossed over the Line of Control and destroyed launchpads areas for terrorists who, the army said, were getting ready to enter India to carry out a series of attacks.
