Jammu:

Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Kumar Singh on Wednesday expressed anguish over the killing of three soldiers in Machhal sector along the Line of Control (LoC).

In a cross-LoC attack by suspected Pakistani terrorists, three Indian soldiers were killed on Tuesday, with body of one of them being mutilated in second such incident in less than a month. The ambush took place in Machhil sector of Kashmir, following which the Indian army vowed heavy “retribution”.

Reacting strongly over the killings of soldiers, Singh termed it as a “cowardly act” and the incident reflected the “barbaric attitude” of the forces on the other side.

The Deputy Chief Minister prayed for peace to the departed souls and conveyed his condolence to the bereaved families.
