In an act of barbarism, Pakistan-backed terrorists killed an Indian soldier and mutilated his body in an attack near the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday.
The terrorists apparently beheaded the soldier before making a cowardly retreat to the Pakistani side of the LoC, aided by the cover fire by Pakistani Army.
The Indian Army has promised to avenge the killing of the soldier, identified as Manjeet Singh of the 17th Sikh Regiment, and said "the incident will be responded to appropriately".
In an encounter close to the Line of Control this evening, one soldier was martyred and one terrorist was killed. The terrorists mutilated the body of the jawan before fleeing back into Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir under the cover of firing by Pakistan army," an army spokesman said late last night (28 October).
The attack comes hours after the Border Security Force said 15 Pakistani soldiers had been killed in retaliatory firing by Indian troops after ceasefire violation along the international border.
Border areas have been on high alert following a spurt in firing from Pakistan after Indian soldiers last month crossed over the LoC and destroyed terror launch pads.
