Indian Military Says 3 of Its Soldiers Killed in Kashmir

There was no immediate reaction from Pakistan. India has stressed that any collateral damage in the cross-border firings is due to the Pakistan army's "unacceptable" support to cross-border terrorism and infiltration as well as its strategy to deploy civilians at forward posts to gain intelligence and act as guides to terrorists crossing the LoC.

Indian army said that the dead include an army officer and that Indian soldiers retaliated "strongly and effectively".

Though there had been stray incidents of firing from Pakistani troops on forward Indian positions along the LoC in adjoining Nowshera sector, the latest ceasefire at such a scale has come after almost a month. "Major Moharkar Prafulla Ambadas, Lance Naik Gurmail Singh, Lance Naik Kuldeep Singh and Sepoy Pargat Singh were grievously injured in firing and later succumbed to their injuries".

Indian army says Pakistani soldiers targeted their posts in Rajouri area of India-administered Kashmir in an "unprovoked cease-fire violation".
