Pakistan on Monday violated ceasefire in the Shaharpur sector of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir.
The neighbouring country has carried out several ceasefire violations since the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes across the Line of Control killing 38 terrorists. Two Pakistani soldiers also lost their lives in the strikes.
The violation took place in Chakri village after a Border Security Force (BSF) post was attacked by terrorists early morning.
A BSF jawan was killed and two others, along with two army personnel, were injured after terrorists launched an attack on the 46 Rashtriya Rifles army and BSF camps in the Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Sunday around 10:30 pm. Two terrorists were also killed during the firing.
The injured jawan is out of danger and has been admitted to the Rashtriya Rifles camp hospital, ANI reported.
The firing in the district ended on Monday morning and search operations have also been called off.
“They (terrorists) used civilians as shield as it was a civilian area, we could not retaliate properly and they fled. There was fire fight that went on for some time, Terrorists were not able to sneak in the camp. Search operations (have been) called off. Terrorists managed to escape as it was dark & army couldn’t retaliate effectively due to apprehension of civilian casualty,” Senior Superintendent of Police Imtiaz Hussain told ANI.
