Three Pak Army soldiers martyred in India's unprovoked firing at LoC

Pakistan has previously said they shot down two Indian military jets and captured a pilot in a major escalation between the nuclear powers over Kashmir, while India said it had lost one MiG-21 fighter and demanded the immediate and safe return of its pilot.

In India, the army accused Pakistani troops of firing mortars and small-arms fire Monday along the disputed frontier, the highly militarized so-called Line of Control, hitting the sector of Poonch in Indian-controlled Kashmir.

Officials said that the Indian Army retaliated "befittingly" to cross-border shelling by Pakistan on Tuesday also.

Pakistani troops for the past 5 days have been raining mortars in the civilian areas of Poonch and Rajouri districts of Jammu and the Indian Army was retaliating strongly.

Subsequent to this aggression, Indian forces targeted multiple Pakistan positions across the LoC resulting in heavy casualties according to Army sources aware of operational decisions.

Three Indian villagers too were injured at Shahpur border area in Poonch district Tuesday in the shelling by the Pakistani army, the officials added. "Pakistan again initiated a third unprovoked violation", added Lieutenant Colonel Anand.

However, he said the Border Security Force (BSF) is giving befitting replies to Pakistan.

Subedar Mohammad Riaz from Jhang, Lance Havaldar Aziz Ullah from Noshero Feroz, and Sepoy Shahid Mansib from Abbottabad embraced martyrdom while one soldier got injured, said the military's media wing.

The agency claimed that Pakistan's army had "responded effectively" to the attack and had inflicted casualties, but did not provide further details.

In the overnight shelling on civilian areas by Pakistani troops, three persons, including a woman, have been injured in the Patri village of Poonch district.

Earlier, five personnel of BSF's 168 battalion, including inspector T. Alex Lalminlun, were injured as shells landed at a forward post in Poonch sector on Monday as Pakistan continued to violate the ceasefire for the fourth consecutive day in Poonch and Rajouri districts.
