Terrorists, aided by the cover fire by Pakistani Army, on Friday crossed the Line of Control and killed an Indian army jawan and mutilated his body in Macchil sector of Kupwara district of Kashmir, an army spokesman said.
The army has vowed revenge, saying “the incident will be responded to appropriately.”
Sepoy Mandeep Singh who died in the attack was 27 years old, the army said. The attack took place under cover fire provided by Pakistan army. One attacker was killed in the incident which the Indian Army said will be “responded to appropriately”.
“In an encounter close to the Line of Control this evening, one soldier was martyred and one terrorist was killed. The terrorists mutilated the body of the jawan before fleeing back into Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir under the cover of firing by Pakistan Army,” he said.
He said the incident reflected the barbarism pervading in official and unofficial organisations in Pakistan.
