Indian Army soldier injured in Rajouri in Pakistan’s sniper fire

Jammu: An Indian Army soldier was injured in a sniper fire by the Pakistan army in Rajouri along the international border on Tuesday.

The trecherous act happened on a day when Indian and Pakistani soldiers exchanged sweets on the LoC

The treacherous deed by the enemy happened on a day when Indian and Pakistani soldiers exchanged sweets on the LoC in Poonch district.

Sources said that the injured soldier was shifted to the Army hospital in Udhampur. “It was a sniper fire from across the Line of Control in Nowshera sector,” said a defence source.

On the other in Poonch, defence sources said, the troops on Tuesday exchanged sweets at two crossing points on the LoC in Mendhar and Poonch sectors.

“Sweets and pleasantries were exchanged by the two armies at two crossing points on Diwali-eve”, a source said.

Traditionally the two armies exchange greetings on the occasions of national and religious festivals of the two countries.

Due to heightened tensions on the LoC, essentially due to ceasefire violations by Pakistan army, the interaction between the two sides remains confined to flag meetings to bring down tensions.
