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.
