MUZAFFARABAD: Two Pakistan army soldiers embraced martyrdom on Saturday at Nakiyal Sector of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) as “ruthless shelling” by Indian troops from across the restive Line of Control (LoC) continued on Saturday, according to the Director General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor.
Soldiers who lost their lives while targeting Indian posts included Hawaldar Abdur Rab and Nayak Khuram.
Pakistan armed forces responded effectively and killed many Indian soldiers, besides destroying many posts of the Indian army.
Earlier today, two civilians were killed and one woman sustained critical wounds by unprovoked violations of Indian troops in AJK.
The casualties occurred in Tata Pani and Jandrot sector along the LoC, which was calm since the morning but became “hot” in the afternoon after Indian troops resorted to heavy mortar and artillery shelling.
The violation came a day after Pakistan released Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Abhinandan Varthaman as “a goodwill gesture” for promotion of peace and stability in the region of South Asia.
