J&K: Ceasefire violation by Pakistan along LoC in BG sector

Pakistan Border Action Team attack BAT member carried headband camera dagger to mutilate Indian jawans record terror attack

Heavy exchange of fire is underway between Indian and Pakistan troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Naushera sector on Sunday.

"The Pakistani army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing from small arms and automatic weapons and shelling of mortar along the LoC in Bhimbher Gali (BG) sector in Rajouri district from 20:15pm", a defence spokesman said.

The funeral of two Indian Army soldiers from Maharashtra who were killed by a Pakistani BAT team near the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir will be held at their respective native villages on Saturday, a defence spokesperson said on Friday.

These violations came just days after an attack by a Pakistan special forces team that sneaked across the LoC into Poonch taking cover of heavy fire and killed two jawans while losing one of their men. Indian troops effectively retaliated, he said.




BAT operations are usually the handiwork of the SSG commandos trained for covert and irregular missions across the LoC, in conjunction with terrorists, after careful reconnaissance and study of vulnerable spots and patrolling patterns of Indian troops.

"Arms, ammunition and other war-like stores including a special dagger and a headband with a camera, knife, an AK rifle, 3 magazines, and 2 grenades besides dresses and bags were recovered, which reflect the barbaric mindset of the Pakistan army", he said.

Indian Army claims that there have been 19 ceasefire violations along the LoC and the worldwide border in Jammu region in June in which one civilian also lost his life while seven others were injured.
