Army captain killed, soldier wounded in LoC firing from India

Published: August 21, 2013

SKARDU: The Pakistan Army has said that one officer was killed and a soldier was wounded by Indian firing along the disputed border in Kashmir, Express News reported on Wednesday.

The officer was identified as Captain Sarfaraz and the soldier was identified as Yasin.

The Indian army started firing at 11:15pm last night in the Batal, Nakyal areas near Skardu. The Pakistani army retaliated by firing as well. The exchange of bullets continued until 2am.

This is not the first time that Indian forces have been allegedly involved in unprovoked firing or shelling, the LoC that has seen allegations of cross-border firing from both sides in recent weeks.

The attack is the latest in a spate of recent cross-border skirmishes between the two neighbours.

The two sides agreed to a ceasefire along the LoC in November 2003, but skirmishes have flared across the heavily-militarised Line of Control (LoC), the de facto border in Kashmir, in recent weeks, with both sides blaming each other for having violated the agreement.

    I’m glad ET decided to use the term “allegedly involved” for Indian Army. So far ET always used “allegedly involved” only in case when Pak Army fired across border; And when Indian Army did the same, it always was “attacked”. Its the first time I’m seeing a news report which says “allegedly involved” in case of Indian Army firing across border.

    There is an agreement between India & Pakistan in 2003 for maintaining peace & tranquility along the line of control which basically prevents both sides for making new check post / bunkers and if there is a flare up in particular sector of LOC then hostilities should be limit to that sector alone. And there are protocols established as well that any objection/ grievance first be communicated through flag meetings.

    Now, If India doesn’t like that this agreement because it is literally checkmated any kind of accusation & war mongering from any side then fine, India can simply walk out of that agreement, no problem.

    Let me tell Indians in clear cut & simple way. Today Pakistan’s mood is not like Kargil when fair amount of intelligentsia thinks that army has pulled on a fast on Nawaz Govt, Now Pak Nation is ready for any eventuality and the Nawaz govt is dragging its feet.

    Salutation for the Captain and worrying times for Indian Sector commander. Do not get surprised when Pak response.

    Asad Khan: “Do not get surprised when Pak response.”

    Violence in Kashmir was as its lowest in last year. 2013 is the first year when Indian-Kashmir suddenly saw a big rise in violent protests and cross border infiltrations where Indian Army killed more than 20 militants already, just in this one year so far. Also, 4 Indian soldiers patrolling peacefully were first killed, and two of them were beheaded and heads taken away into Pakistan. It was followed very recently by killing of 5 Indian soldiers in August itself. Furthermore, as per UN & Indian reports, so far 84 ceasefire violations were done by Pakistan Army.
    Less than 2 weeks ago, Indian Army was given the freedom to retaliate as it pleases, any time and any where. Now suddenly Nawaz Sharif is loudly declaring that Pakistan will “show restraint and responsibility”. Even Kayani now declared (in a quick interview) that it is going to support Pak government in its peace talks.
    Do you think PakArmy had a sudden change of heart just like that? Or is it because it realised it cannot abuse India’s patience any more?
    As for your question, I’m sure PakArmy won’t do anymore violations till the situation calms down. And I can guarantee you Indian Army will soon stop its attacks too – but only after it is sure there won’t be anymore infiltrations or firings across borders from Pakistan’s side.

    1. India : Probably disrupt hard earned peace, a quest for which 1000s have already sacrificed their lives.
    2. Pak : Cover firing for terrorists to infiltrate Indian borders.

    History:
    1993: Pak denies presence of Dawood Ibrahim in Pak. Latest news.. Pak minister makes a statement that he was indeed in Pakistan.
    1999: Ind-Pak aman ki asha program started which brought peace between the warring nations. Meanwhile Pak regular army soldiers secretly occupy Kargil. Pak reaction… we categorically deny presence of our army in Kargil .. The truth the whole world knows.
    2002: Pak denies Laden hiding in Pak, found right under the nose of army.

    History books have to modified to find teach younger that India initiated all the wars and Pak won all the wars.

    Sorry folks .. India has no reason to start unproved firing and Pak statements have no credibility at all. Rational thinkers would find out the truth from this article.

    ET Please publish.

    Let me put you out of hibernation then.

    It is not violence in Kashmir, it is actually struggle for liberation going on in Kashmir which as it phases & cycles. From 2003 onward their ‘relative calm’ because Kashmiri, Indian & Pakistani leadership was engaged in composite dialogue, even then the hardcore freedom fighter shows their displeasure when PM Singh’s visited the site of Bus Service between LOC. From 2008 onwards the unrest started upward spiral due to India’s brutal policies in Kashmir.

    For beheading drama, just for the tip of Iceberg the two examples, the brave Indian Army caught naked in Siachen for faking operations just for medal & promotions and instigating violence in Kashmir like Chittisingpora in which Sikhs were killed by clamming these were terrorists when President Clinton visited Indian Subcontinent, so on can unlock the mystery behind the beheading.

    The LOC was alive & happening place from 1974 till 2003, the agreement of 2003 is taken from Indo Chinese model of peace & tranquility along LOAC as a catalyst for the cordial environment. Looks like either India doesn’t want do go along with the agreement or it is just election time coming up, my judgment calls for latter.

    Neither the Pak Army nor the Pak Nation has gone for change of hearts, just the bubble of some Delusionists lazy media personalities has been busted that ‘just peace’ can achieve by not resolving the core issues first.

    Pakistan is showing restraint right now but do not take it as granted. Was Indian army sleeping from 1974 till 2003? When the intensity of LOC was much larger on scale and area wise ? If Pak forces didn’t humble then what make you or anyone think that it will now?

    The agreement of 2003 must be respected and there are protocols and procedures given. If India doesn’t want that then fine but don’t cry foul then.

    When????, till the time of cosmos is over???? then????

    Just to give you a browse of history, India retaliated with massive force only once on Kashmir. Only once, and that was in Sept 1965, after when Pak forces deliberately cross LOC (Cease Fire Line then) after having some hot exchanges of bouts. India announced that she will choose the place & time of her own, she did, crossed International Border, and then got what???? got stalemated from an adversary which was 7 times lesser in some respect in force parity.

    Nope, hardly a good show militarily and not so politically.

    After that 65, India just locked Kashmir. It huffs & puffs here & there along LOC and sometimes on International Border and that is just that.

    After Pak’s nuclear dimension, the best India has done is to avoid Kashmir altogether Diplomatically.

    You DO NOT HAVE THE CAPABILITY to maintain what you believe. You just have WORDS.

    And that is all you will ever have on planet earth till the end of time.

    Well, fyi I got my DNA tested in the genographic project and my paternal haplogroup is r* which is not Dravidian but Aryan. north india is not Dravidian but indoaryan. Anyways, all this is hogwash because being a Aryan or a Dravidian does not make a person superior, it is the thinking process of the mind and actions which matters. If you would get your DNA test done in genographic project you might be in for a surprise. Thank you, rab rakha.

    Dear friend the fact of the life is that your history books have been modified and you have been fed lies all this while.
    Indian Army is the one of the most respected army in the world for it’s ethic. Also before making such statements please look at what legacy your army has left behind. The secretary of State of USA calling ISI and pak army “Pathological liers” is something you should be concerned more about. No one utters a word .. I didn’t see any reporter defending the army.
    Hillary Clinton comes and make a statement “If you find the clauses of the bill so stringent, you don’t have to take the money” … No one utters a word. So dear friend think twice before calling someone rouge.

    Yes Uncle, Chankia, that is what I am saying all along that you always choose when to strike because you are treacherous, have superiority complex and disrespectful, you guys have problem with all the South Asian countries but tension with Pakistan overshadowed all of them, you guys poke China and she put you in your place, you guyz instigates trouble inside Nepal, You made Sri Lanka bleed, You do not honour your commitments with Bangladesh, you interfere in Maldives, The foot prints of every geopolitical problem in South Asia leads to you, WHY?.

    BECAUSE YOU HAVE A PROBLEM and it is PSYCHIATRIC in nature.

    Oh by the way, a bit of news for the uncle like yours and kids like mine, the actual land of Mahatma Buddha belongs to Pakistan now.

    Guess what? There was NO Republic of India back then and there was no Nation State System like today, so technically the Republic of India of today can’t claims to be the sole proprietor of Peace & culture / heritage. Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Afghanistan (buddha of Bamiyan) and to some extent Central Asian republics of today can claim as much as the “the land of bla bla” as Republic of India does. But they choose not to.

    Refreshing, isn’t it?

    Old habits die hard, more than willing to face the consequences, just make sure you choose well, this time, cuz now it is Nuclear.

    Prepare for war! At current of escalation a war is imminent within 2-3 months. A full scale invasion into Kashmir. Assuming the UN can bully both countries into nuclear pause, the war will be fought covertly and with deniability. If Pakistan looses the reigns over kashmir there will be no nuclear war, (muslims have great cause to honor life.) If india looses it will launch a preemptive strike almost definitely.
