NEW DELHI: Indian security forces hit back at Pakistan, hard, overnight Monday, killing three Pakistani soldiers across the LoC in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK), and separately, neutralizing a wanted Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist in J&K’s Pulwama district.
In retaliation for a ceasefire violation on Saturday, the Indian Army undertook an operation very reminiscent of last year’s surgical strikes. They crossed over to PoK early Tuesday, to Rakhchikri in the Rawlakot sector, and killed three Pakistani troops while also wounding one, agencies reported.
Thus, India avenged the unprovoked and indiscriminate shelling and firing in the Keri sector by Pakistani troops on Saturday, which led to three soldiers and one Army Major being martyred.
In a separate operation, a crack team of Jammu and Kashmir police cordoned off a house in the Samboora area of Pulwama district where two JeM terrorists were believed to be holed up, police said.
