Pakistan resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Naugam sector on Thursday, killing two soldiers, even as the Indian Army gave a befitting response.

“Pakistan initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation along the LoC in Naugam sector, Kupwara on Thursday morning by firing mortars and other weapons,” Defence spokesperson Colonel Rajesh Kalia said.

Kalia said two soldiers were killed and four sustained injuries in the firing from across the border. “The injured personnel are being evacuated while a befitting response is being given to the Pakistani firing,” he added.

The development comes a day after another soldier was killed in unprovoked small arms firing and “intense” shelling with mortars by Pakistani troops in Jammu and Kashmir’s Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district.

The deceased soldier was identified as Lance Naik Karnail Singh. General Officer Commanding of the White Knight Corps and all ranks paid their tributes to the deceased soldier and offered condolences to his family.
