Army Major 3 Jawans Killed After Pakistan Violates Ceasefire In J&k

An Indian Army major and three other soldiers were killed along the Line of Control in a suspected Pakistan-backed operation on Saturday but multiple versions surfaced on the nature of the attack in Jammu's Rajouri.

"Pakistani soldiers violated the 2003 cease-fire accord by targeting Indian posts in Rajouri sector", Indian army said in a statement describing the firing incident as an "unprovoked cease-fire violation".

The Indian army named the dead officer as Major Moharkar Prafulla Ambadas, while the injured soldiers as Lance Naik Gurmail Singh and Sepoy Pargat Singh of 16 Corps, Defence spokesperson Colonel NN Joshi confirmed.

Four soldiers - three Lance Naiks and a Major of the 120 Infantry Brigade - were killed while another one was injured.

"Martyrdom of Indian Army soldiers will not go in vain", said an army spokesman. There was no immediate reaction from Pakistan.

At least four Indian soldiers were killed on Saturday in Pakistani firing along the highly militarised de facto border that divides the disputed region of Kashmir between the nuclear-armed rivals, Indian officials said.

Two soldiers were also wounded and are receiving medical treatment, he said, adding the Indian army had retaliated to the firing "strongly and effectively".

The Pakistani troops had targeted an Army patrol at Brat Galla in the Keri sector around 1215 hours today, in which the four Army personnel were killed, a defence spokesperson said.
