Terrorists aided by the cover fire from Pakistan Army, on Thursday, crossed the Line of Control and killed an Indian Army soldier in Macchil sector of Kupwara district of Kashmir. The terrorists mutilated the body of the soldier. Indian army has condemned the act and has said that they will be “respond appropriately” to the incident.

The incident has received heavy backlash on Twitter and people are calling the act as “barbaric”. Angry citizens are also asking Indian Army for ‘revenge’ against Pakistan Army. The twitterati warned the “enemies” about the repercussions of the unwarranted attack.

Tensions have brewed up between the two neighbouring countries since Pakistan based terrorist organisations Jaish-e-mohammad killed 19 soldiers in Uri district in Kashmir which led India to launch a surgical strike against terrorists camps across LoC. The already strained relations between the two nations deepened yesterday when Delhi police arrested three Indians for allegedly sending ‘sensitive’ defence documents, including details of BSF deployment on the border to Pakistan High Commission staffer, Mehmood Akhtar.

Secretary S Jaishankar later called Pakistan’s High Commissioner Abdul Basit and declared Akhtar a ‘persona non grata’ for spying. Pakistan retaliated within a few hours and declared Surjeet Singh, an Indian official at the High Commission in Islamabad, as ‘persona non grata’ but did not spell out any charge.
