According to reports in Indian media, the Indian Army has eliminated 12 Pakistan Army soldiers, including two officers on Thursday in retaliation of continued ceasefire violation by Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC).

Pakistan Says Indian Army Killed Seven Innocent Civilians in a Fierce Gun Battle in Kashmir Valley

According to media reports in India, sources stated that twelve coffins were seen at the Pakistani Army brigade headquarters opposite Jammu and Kashmir’s Sundarbani sector.

The Pakistan army was seen using two MI 17 helicopters to transport the mortal remains of the slain soldiers from Sundarbani sector to Rawalpindi, intelligence sources further added.

The intelligence inputs suggest that two officers and ten soldiers of the Pak army were killed in India’s retaliation in the Sundarbani sector and 22 Pakistani soldiers were injured.

Pakistani troops violated ceasefire along Line of Control in multiple districts of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday. An Army rifleman was killed on Thursday after Pakistan violated ceasefire along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

“Pakistani forces on Thursday violated the ceasefire and resorted to heavy shelling with mortar along the LoC in Sunderbani and Nowshera Sectors in Rajouri district,” officials said.

The Pakistani forces started firing in Sunderbani area on March 21 morning while firing at Nowshera sector began around 2.45 pm. The Indian Army retaliated strongly and effectively to the firing from the other side of the border.

Earlier this week, a soldier was killed and three civilians were injured when Pakistani troops fired across the LoC in Rajouri district. After taking note of the grave situation at borders, the Army on Wednesday provided advanced sniper rifles to its troops posted along the LoC in the Kashmir Valley and Jammu region to retaliate ceasefire violation by Pakistan.
