The Indian troops retaliated effectively, a defence spokesman says

Two civilians were killed and a few others suffered injuries on Saturday when the Pakistani Army violated the ceasefire and resorted to mortar shelling and firing at forward posts and villages along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district, officials said.

The Pakistani Army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing from small arms, automatic weapons and mortars on Indian Army posts along the LoC in Poonch sector from 0630 hours, a defence spokesman said.

The Indian troops retaliated effectively, he said.

The Pakistani troops rained mortar bomb shells and resorted to heavy firing targeting civilian villages as well, a police officer said.

“Very heavy shelling is going on. So far two civilians have died in Pakistani shelling in Khadi Karmara village along the LoC,” he said, adding that some other people suffered injuries.

There have been 23 incidents of ceasefire violation, an attack by Pakistan special forces team and two infiltration bids in June, in which four people including three jawans were killed and 12 were injured.

On June 29, two Indian Army jawans were injured when the Pakistani troops fired from small arms and shelled mortars on forward posts and civilian areas along the LoC in Poonch district.

Even on Eid-ul Fitr on June 26, the Pakistani Army fired small arms and automatic weapons and shelled mortars along the LoC in the Bhimbher Gali sector of Rajouri.

On June 22, a Pakistani special forces team sneaked across the LoC into Poonch under cover of heavy fire and killed two jawans — 34-year-old Naik Jadhav Sandip of Aurangabad and 24-year-old Sepoy Mane Savan Balku of Kolhapur.

One Pakistani soldier was also killed. Pakistan’s Border Action Team comprises its army’s special forces personnel and terrorists.

3 Army personnel injured in militant attack

Meanwhile, three Army personnel, including a Captain, were injured when militants fired at a patrol team in Bandipora district, police said on Saturday. The militants opened indiscriminate fire on the Army patrol at Hajin in Bandipora late last night, a police official said.

The militants managed to escape under the cover of darkness, he added. The injured were admitted to the 92 Base Hospital in Srinagar.
