Two Pakistan Army soldiers were martyred after the Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing in Bhimber sector along the Line of Control (LoC) on Wednesday, the military’s media wing said.
“Pakistan Army troops responded to Indian unprovoked firing. Reports of substantial damage to Indian posts,” said a statement issued by the Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR).
The martyred soldiers are identified as Sepoy Muneer Chohan, a 32-year-old resident of Kahuta village and Sepoy Amir Hussain, 28, a resident of Bhimber district.
The instances of ceasefire violations by the Indian forces recorded an alarming increase since the start of the month February following which the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government has readied an evacuation plan for the residents near the LoC.
