J-K: Army launches massive assault along LoC a day after Pakistan mutilates soldier

The Army has launched a massive assault on Pakistan along the Line of Control in Poonch and Rajouri districts, a day after three Indian soldiers were killed and the body of one of them was mutilated in Machil sector of Kupwara district in northern Kashmir. The counter-offensive follows the Army Northern Command vow that “retribution will be heavy for this cowardly act”.

Brigadier, Northern Command, S Gotra said that a counter-offensive, in retaliation to Tuesday’s ambush on the Army patrol in Machhil sector of Kashmir, is under way. Defence PRO Manish Mehta, too, said  Indian Army posts are responding strongly and giving a befitting reply.

Pakistan Army has also reportedly fired at Indian posts along the LoC in Bhimber Gali, Krishna Ghati and Nowshera sectors.

This is the second such incident of mutilation of the body of an Indian soldier in the same sector since October 28 when terrorists had crossed the LoC and killed an Indian Army soldier and mutilated his body.
