Two Soldiers Dead In Pak Firing In Jammu And Kashmir's Sunderbani

Srinagar:  Two soldiers died in firing by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control in Jammu Kashmir’s Sunderbani sector last evening. The Indian side retailed after the ceasefire violation by Pakistan, the Army said today.

Last month, five members of a family were killed in heavy shelling by Pakistani forces this near the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had then said that the armed forces were retaliating appropriately to ceasefire violations by the Pakistani army “wherever necessary”, adding that the defences along the border were being periodically fortified to withstand any attack.

Pakistan last week summoned India’s Deputy High Commissioner in Islamabad to provoke what it called “unprovoked ceasefire violations” by Indian forces along the Line of Control.


The soldiers who died in Monday’s firing were identified as rifleman Vinod Singh and rifleman Jaki Sharma.
