In Poonch and Rajouri districts of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), 3 Indian soldiers were killed in ceasefire violations by the Pakistan Army on the Line of Control (LoC). Official sources gave this information on Friday. Defense Ministry spokesman Colonel Devendra Anand said, “Nayak Prem Bahadur Khatri and Rifleman Sukhbir Singh were seriously injured in the firing on the Line of Control in Sundarbani sector of Rajouri district on Friday by Pakistani soldiers. Both the injured soldiers later succumbed.
Meanwhile, Subedar (JCO) Swatantra Singh, who was seriously injured in firing on the Line of Control in Poonch district on Thursday, also died on Friday.
A Defense Ministry spokesman said, ‘Subedar Swatantra Singh, Nayak Prem Bahadur Khatri and Rifleman Sukhbir Singh Bahadur were honest soldiers. The nation will always be indebted to him for his supreme sacrifice and devotion to duty.
For the last 8 months, India-China forces have been standing face to face in Ladakh. Taking advantage of this, Pakistan is trying to spread disturbances on the LoC. For this, along with the ceasefire violation on the border, it is also trying to send terrorists to Kashmir. Recently, four such terrorists sent by Pakistan were killed by the security forces in Nagrota encounter. A large amount of ammunition was also recovered from them.
