Indian and Pakistani Army trade fire on LoC in Jammu and Kashmir

Rebels have attacked a police squad in the Indian portion of Kashmir killing three civilians

The armies of India and Pakistan on Tuesday exchanged fire along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district on Tuesday, reports quoting sources said.

The bunker was destroyed less the 60 seconds, and Indian soldiers can be heard saying that the target had been hit successfully.

Moreover, in the Krishna Ghati area, the Pakistani posts are situated at a height higher than the Indian posts whereas the video shows the Indian shelling at posts located slightly lower in altitude. "Pakistani troops effectively responded to silent Indian firing", the spokesman said. Significantly, in April this year, there were seven ceasefire violations by the Pakistani troops along the LoC in Poonch and Rajouri sectors of Jammu and Kashmir.




Later on in the video, after subsequent explosions on the post, the same voice is again heard saying, "Aa gaya tank ka, sahib, tank ka aa gaya" (the tank has done it). The BAT attackers used this as a cover and entered the Indian side and allegedly beheaded Naib Subedar Paramjeet Singh of 22 Sikh Infantry and Head Constable Prem Sagar of 200th Battalion of BSF.

As many as 1142 militant related incidents were reported in the state between 2012 and 2016 in which 236 security personnel and 90 civilians were killed, it said in reply to an RTI query filed by a PTI Bhasha correspondent.

The Indian Army chief also said that the Indian forces would retaliate and will also share the details of the action with the country. Major Gaurav Arya, a retired Army veteran said the attack was carried out by a Sikh Regiment unit.
