3 Indian Soldiers Martyred In LoC Ceasefire Violations By Pakistan

Jammu: Three Indian soldiers were killed in ceasefire violations on the Line of Control (LoC) by Pakistan troops in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch and Rajouri districts, official sources said on Friday.

Naik Prem Bahadur Khatri and Rifleman Sukhbir Singh were critically injured on the LoC in Sunderbani Sector of Rajouri district during firing by Pakistan troops on Friday. “Both injured soldiers later succumbed to their injuries,” Defence Ministry spokesman Colonel Devender Anand said.

He said the Indian Army immediately responded to the unprovoked firing from across the border.

Meanwhile, Subedar (JCO) Swatantra Singh — critically injured on the LoC in Poonch district on Thursday — succumbed to his injuries on Friday.

“Subedar Swatantra Singh, Naik Prem Bahadur Khatri and Rifleman Sukhbir Singh were brave, highly motivated and sincere soldiers,” the spokesman said.

At both these places the Indian Army responded strongly to enemy fire.

The nation will always remain indebted to them for their supreme sacrifice and devotion to duty, the official added.
