New Delhi: In a strong retaliatory action against ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC), the Indian Army today targeted Pakistani positions and gunned down 2 Pak troopers.
Indian troops carried out operations last night after the ceasefire violations.
The two Pakistani soldiers were shot dead at Tangdhar sector while they were trying to give covering fire to infiltrators, the army said.
“In retaliatory action to unprovoked ceasefire violations and repeated attempts to facilitate infiltration by Pakistan Army in Tangdhar sector, own troops carried out calibrated operations last night in which two Pakistani soldiers were killed,” Srinagar-based defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia said.
On Monday, an army jawan, Sepoy Pushpendra Singh, was killed on the Line of Control when he and his unit challenged a group of infiltrators.
