One soldier was killed in firing by Pakistani troops in Machhal Sector of Kupwara district in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday. “One soldier was martyred in Pakistan sniping at Machhil Sector today,” a defence spokesman said. He said in retaliation, fire assault with heavy weapons was being directed on many Pakistani posts.

Yesterday, an army jawan was killed and two others were injured in Pakistani shelling in Naushera sector of Rajouri district in Jammu province.

One of the injured jawans succumbed to his injuries last night.

In another incident, two unidentified militants were gunned down in an encounter with security forces in Sopore area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district, police said.

The militants, believed to be foreigners, were killed after they were confronted by the security forces during a search operation at village Dursoo near Dangiwacha, 60 kms from here, a police officer said.

He said security forces launched a search operation in the village following specific information about presence of some militants.

The militants opened fire on noticing the movement of security forces, triggering an encounter which left both the militants dead, the officer said. The identity and group affiliation of the slain militants was awaited as the search operation in the village was still continuing, he said.

      In India we are all Indians irrespective of our religion. Somebody born and raised in a theorocratic regime cannot understand that. We don't need to liberate anything, stan is imploding. It needs no help.

        In any country, even a slight disturbance in any part, the head of state will immediately make public address. But in India, PM is the Nth person to speak about as if the incident is a daily affair or he is otherwise busy.. Very sad.
