Pakistan violates ceasefire along LOC in Jammu & Kashmir

"Ahmed was a courageous and honest soldier".

The DGMO made it explicitly clear that the Indian Army reserves the right to retaliate against any ceasefire violation, but "is honest in its effort of maintaining peace and tranquillity along the LoC provided there was reciprocity", Army spokesman Col. Aman Anand said.

On the other hand a soldier was killed in Manjakote sector of Rajouri district's Tarkundi area.

"The vehicle fell into the river and four soldiers were killed in the Line of Control (LoC) ceasefire violation", Ghafoor said.

The Pakistani military has accused the Indian forces of killing four Pakistani soldiers by firing from across the Line of Control (LoC) in the divided Kashmir region, the Iranian Press TV reports. "The indiscriminate firing using small arms, automatics and mortars that started from 7.30 still on". "He was hit and fatally injured when the Pakistani troops resorted to firing and shelling on the Indian forward posts", a defence spokesman in Jammu said.

The girl has been identified as Sajida Kousar.

There have been hundreds of violations of the 2003 ceasefire agreement by the Pakistan along the LoC and the International Border in J&K since Indian army carried surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir on September 29 a year ago.

"Continuous ceasefire violation on the LoC by the Indian army shows New Delhi is not honest regarding peace in South Asia".
