SRINAGAR: Tension seems to be soaring at the Line of Control near the Naugam sector in north Kashmir after a ceasefire violation by Pakistan claimed the life of two Indian Army soldiers and injured four others.


A statement issued by the Indian Army confirmed that two soldiers were killed while four others received injuries after Pakistan initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation along the LoC in Naugam sector in Kupwara on Thursday morning.


The army said mortars are fired and other weapons were also used by the Pakistani force. “Pakistan initiated an unprovoked ceasefire violation along LoC in Naugam sector, Kupwara today morning by firing mortars and other weapons. Two soldiers fatal and four soldiers injured, being evacuated. The befitting response is being given,” the Indian Army tweeted.


The Indian Army also said that a befitting reply was given in response to the ceasefire violation. It may be noted that there has been an increase in the number of ceasefire violations on LoC. Security forces have also been worried about an increase in the number of infiltration bids.

Reports suggest that efforts are being made to push in more men from across the LoC through several launch pad as the winter months approach.

“Every year, Pakistan tries to send across terrorists before the snowfall, and it's happening this year too. We have reports of infiltration from Gurez and Bandipora sectors. The Army had also established contact at these places, and we have managed to recover huge arms and ammunition from areas close to the border. There were attempts in Baramulla and Handwara too. Our border security grid is strong. We have managed to foil all the attempts in bordering areas,” said Dilbagh Singh, DG, Jammu and Kashmir Police.
