LoC Violations: Indian army kills another soldier in Kashmir

The military said on Wednesday that unprovoked firing by Indian troops had killed one of its soldiers across the tense border in disputed Kashmir.
An ISPR (Inter-Services Public Relations) statement said that one of its soldiers had “embraced martyrdom due to unprovoked Indian firing” at the Line of Control (LoC).
“Indian troops again resorted to ceasefire violation and carried out unprovoked firing this evening at LoC in Hot Spring and Jandrot sectors from 2200 (1700 GMT) to 2300 hours (1800 GMT),” the statement said.
“Resultantly Naik Ashraf embraced Shahadat (martyrdom) at Kundi Post due to unprovoked Indian firing. Naik Ashraf is survived by a wife and 3 daughters,” the statement added.


He was the fifth soldier reported killed in Kashmir in recent weeks but politicians on both sides have said the skirmishes should not derail a bilateral peace process. Last week, India killed at least three Pakistani soldiers with retaliatory firing from Pakistan troops killing two Indian soldiers in between.


While foreign ministers on both sides have warned against escalating tensions, Indian army chief General Bikram Singh has reiterated the sense of outrage within the Indian army’s ranks over the killing of two soldiers on January 8, one of whom was beheaded.
