A day after an Indian soldier was killed and his body mutilated by terrorists who came from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir with the help of cover fire provided by Pakistani troops, the Indian Army announced Saturday it had carried out a massive assault across the Line of Control, destroying four Pakistani posts and inflicting heavy casualties.

The strike by the Army took place in the Keran sector of Kupwara district, north Kashmir. “Four Pakistani posts have been destroyed in a massive fire assault in the Keran sector. Heavy casualties inflicted,” the Army’s Northern Command said. It did not give further details.

On Friday, after Sepoy Mandeep Singh was killed and his body mutilated, the Army had warned of “an appropriate response”, saying the incident reflected the barbarism that “pervades official and unofficial organisations across the border”.

Earlier Saturday, Indian and Pakistani troops exchanged fire in the Keran sector. In the Machil sector, a BSF jawan, Nitin Koli, was killed while responding to a ceasefire violation by the Pakistanis.

A senior BSF officer said Koli was firing a long-range weapon when there was an explosion in the chamber and the recoil struck him. He later succumbed to injuries, the officer said.

In another case of ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops, a woman was injured in the Keran sector, officials said. Pakistani troops fired shells from across the LoC to the Indian side early Saturday morning in which a woman, identified as Shaheena Begum, was injured. Officials said the Indian Army retaliated to the “unprovoked” Pakistani aggression “in equal measure”.

Ever since the Indian Army announced on September 29 that it had conducted surgical strikes against terror launch pads along the Line of Control, Pakistani troops have been violating the ceasefire on a daily basis and the Indians have been returning fire.

      India could say they killed 500 stani Soldiers or they did another surgical strike, who cares? India got the shame of not producing any proof after stan showed the entire region to international media. If India had a proof it could have humiliated stan, dont tell me India just let go an opportunity in good spirit, lol. Stupids.

                                        Because of kangi India suffered for 65 years but not anymore. s killing soldiers and civilians whenever wherever they want and Kangi was telling same thing Peace, friendly relationship and doing biryani diplomacy. Nothing wrong if any corporate tie-up to setup fighters manufacturing in India, it will create jobs, fighters cost will reduce and no need to worry on the spare parts and most important no need to search for fighters every time India want to buy which is more dela process.

                                          I just read the "Dawn" site and there the Army is claiming that they have destro 4 Indian posts in retaliation for unprovoked firing from us which they claim had killed and injured a few civilians. What is going on? There should be some neutral agency where we can get unbiased and verified news about the LOC .
