Indian Army on Monday night destroyed two Pakistan posts which gave cover fire for Border Action Team (BAT) which mutilated bodies of two Army jawans, said reports.
According to some reports in media, Pakistan Army knew in advance that Indian Army will retaliate heavily and hence Pakistan Army’s personnel had already left these posts.
But, few media reports also said that 6-7 Pakistan soldiers were killed in the attack.
However, government agencies have not confirmed about the reports of Indian retaliation along LoC so far.
Earlier in the day, in a barbaric attack, Pakistan killed and mutilated two security personnel along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir. The brutal attack has been condemned and the Indian army has vowed revenge. The Indian Army has said that such “despicable” acts of Pakistan’s army would be “appropriately responded” to.
“It was a pre-planed operation of Pakistan army. They had pushed in BATs over 250 metres deep inside Indian territory and set up ambushes for a long period to carry out the attack,” a senior army officer said.
The Pakistan Border action teams (BATs) sneaked about 250 metres into the Indian territory. Pakistan army resorted to heavy rocket and mortar firing on two forward posts in Poonch’s Krishna Ghati sector.
The ceasefire violation by Pakistan started at 8:40 AM in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district in Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan fired RPG on Indian posts followed by mortars. The Pakistan BAT (Border Action Team) attacked came 250 meters inside Indian side.
The Pakistani army targeted patrol between two posts which was a joint patrol of Army and BSF consisting of 10 soldiers.
An army JCO and a BSF head constable were killed and another soldier was injured in the attack, a defence spokesman said.
Pakistan’s Army carried out unprovoked rocket and mortar firing on two forward posts on the Line of Control in Krishna Ghati Sector (in Poonch district) this morning, a spokesman of the Indian Army’s Northern Command said in statement here.
Simultaneously, a BAT operation was launched on a patrol operating between the two posts, it said.
