In a “barbaric” incident, terrorists, aided by the cover fire by Pakistani Army, tonight crossed the Line of Control and killed an Indian army jawan and mutilated his body in Macchil sector of Kupwara district of Kashmir. One attacker was killed in the incident which the Indian army said will be “responded to appropriately”.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar have been briefed about the incident. Television reports said the Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit will be summoned tomorrow.

“In an encounter close to the Line of Control this evening, one solider was martyred and one terrorist was killed. The terrorists mutilated the body of the jawan before fleeing back into Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir under the cover of firing by Pakistan Army,” an army spokesman said.

He said the incident reflected the barbarism pervading in official and unofficial organisations in Pakistan. “The incident will be responded to appropriately,” he added.

            Heartening and love brahmins sacrificing themselves for Bharat Mata. But are you sure? Because brahmins are born criminals that they would have changed the dead sudra's name into a shatriya's name. Criminals, you see.

                      The sad state of affairs between both countries has lead to the current situation. stan are accusing India of killing innocent young girl and mother whilst the Indian are claiming that a solider got killed under the cover fire of stan army. stan alos accueses India of engineering the death of 51 police cadets and under the cover fire of its army sneaked in almost 100 spies whilst India accuses stan of the same. Diplomats from both countries have been expelld....this situation seems to be getting bad to worse...who is telling the truth....? All i know is that stan and Modi policies dont agree...he was sworn into office on the understanding that he will take India to war with stan....people of India dont want a war they want peace....army cover fire captured spy pigeons no evidence of any statements made by this goverment really makes me wonder how many lies have they told...is this is what we have voted....? At least tell us the truth we dont want to hear war rhetoric all the time...Blood is blood stan are our brothers and we are theirs.....lets not the world pull us further aprt then we already are. Peace

                            It is not surprising anyone in India as same thing happened earlier also.It is an act of stan Army/ISI which is known in world a Barbaric lacks culture,humanity above all no respect for dead body. That is why stan is bed in world as a mother-ship of terrorism.One can not change the DNA of Barbaric people.That is why even Muslims countries do not issue Visa to the People of stan due to the fear of virus of Terrorists activities may enter in their countries.One afraid stan heading towards Anarchy and ISIS Culture where beheaded is common.

                                How can anyone cross the LoC without being noticed is baffling. This is the most heavily guarded, watched, manned, mined, barb wired border in the world. How can anyone cross it without detection by the Indian army? Please explain. Also what is crossing under cover of fire? Both sides are engaged in firing at each other. Last thing anyone would want to do is go in the middle of it.

                                        it is happening since 19590. Only you did not know or politicians prevented soldiers to fight back. Since last 7 decades, India is talking leaking and what you want is Inida to keep taking leaking. Current government and people of India simply does not want that. Face it, terrorist must be defeated what ever he cost.
