New Delhi: The Indian Army has carried out a counter-strike on Pakistani border posts along the line of control (LoC), a week after two Indian soldiers were martyred and their bodies mutilated by Pakistani forces, Times Now reported.
An exclusive video footage accessed by the news channel shows a destroyed Pakistani bunker along the LoC after a mortar fire was launched by India near Jammu and Kashmir’s Krishna Ghati sector in Poonch district. The bunker was destroyed in less than 60 seconds.
In the footage, the soldiers can also be heard saying that the target has been hit successfully.
“Sir, the shell has hit the target, we have brought it down,” one soldier can be heard saying in the video.
Last week, the Army had promised “appropriate” retribution for Pakistan’s “despicable act”
“While fire assaults are already under way in different sectors of the LoC, the retaliation for Pakistan army’s inhuman act will be well-planned and executed at a time and place of our choosing,” a senior Army officer had told the media.
On May 1, two jawans were martyred in Pakistan firing along the LoC in Poonch district and their bodies were mutilated in a simultaneously launched attack by their Border Action Team.
“Pakistan army carried out unprovoked rocket and forward mortar firing on two forward posts on the LoC in Krishna Ghati sector. Simultaneously, BAT action was launched on a patrol operating in between the two posts,” the Northern Command of the Indian Army had said in a statement.
