3 Jawans killed in LoC firing, cowardly Pakistan mutilates body of Army jawan


Delhi: In a cowardly act, three Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistan in an unprovoked firing near the Line of Control (LoC).

The body of one of the soldiers was found tortured and mutilated. Reacting to the incident, Indian Army warned Pakistan of strong retribution.

Northern Command tweeted, “JKOps 3 soldiers killed in action on LC in Machhal. Body of one soldier mutilated, retribution will be heavy for this cowardly act.”

There have been more than 280 incidents of firing and shelling along the LoC and the Border (IB) in J&K by Pakistani troops since the surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads by in PoK on September 29.

Meanwhile, as per media reports, Army Vice Chief Lt Gen Bipin Rawat briefs Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on the death of soldiers.

At that time, in a brief statement, the Army had said, “In a despicable act, the terrorists mutilated the body of the Indian Army soldier before fleeing into PoK, supported by covering fire from Pakistani Army posts. This barbarism is a true reflection which pervades official and non-official organisations across the border. This act will invite an appropriate response.”
