Indian soldier martyred in Pakistan firing at LoC in J&K’s Poonch

Jammu: An Indian Army NCO was martyred in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan on the Line of Control at Krishna Ghati sector of Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch on Thursday, officials said.

The Army says it is giving a benefiting response to all acts of aggression by Pakistan along the LoC

“Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation on LoC in J&K today,” the Army said.

“Our army responded strongly to enemy fire. In the ceasefire violation, Havaldar Nirmal Singh was critically injured and succumbed to his injuries later. We shall ever remain indebted to him & salute his supreme sacrifice.”

There has been a spurt in ceasefire violations along the LoC in multiple sectors in Poonch with Pakistan targeting civilian areas and defence positions with long range mortars and small arms.
