Srinagar, Nov 23: In a dastardly act, three soldiers were killed, and one of them was beheaded on the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Machhil sector onTuesday.
However, Pakistan is as usual on the same line and denying the allegations.
The martyr’s grief-stricken father in Lohagarh village expressed that “I lost my only son to the nation, India should give a befitting reply to Pakistan”.
The soldier who was mutilated has been identified as 31-year-old Rifleman Prabhu Singh from Khirjankhas village in Jodhpur district, Rajasthan. The other two soldiers are Gunner Manoj K Kushwah and Rifleman Shashank K Singh, both from Gazipur district of Uttar Pradesh.
Surprisingly, the cowrad act is the second such incident with soldier’s body in less than a month. The army has vowed “heavy retribution for the cowardly act”.
The incident took place in Machhil sector of the Line of Control (LoC), which divides the state between India and Pakistan, in Kupwara district.
Meanwhile, defence Minister Manohar Parrikar was informed about the situation by Army Vice Chief Lt. Gen. Bipin Rawat, officials said on Tuesday.
Pakistan Army on Wednesday yet again violated ceasefire in Bhimber Gali, Krishna Ghati and Nowshera sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
Meanwhile, Border Security Force told media that “Pakistani intruder killed in RS Pura sector(J&K). He was challenged by troops and was shot when he did not pay heed.”
