JK CM pays tributes to 4 Army personnel killed in Pak firing

Unconfirmed media reports suggested that the Pakistan Army, violating the ceasefire agreement, fired indiscriminately on the Indian posts without any provocation. But given its actions and behaviour, it didn't appear that Pakistan really wanted peace, he added.

"The martyrdom of Indian soldiers will not go in vain", the defence spokesman said.

Sources said the ceasefire violation was preceded by an IED blast and militants firing on an Indian patrol near the LoC.

A statement issued by the Indian Army said Indian forces retaliated heavily to the cross-border firing.

Kashmir's director-general of police, S.P. Vaid, said the four soldiers died after they were attacked by a team of attackers who came from the Pakistani side of Kashmir.

"Indian Army has retaliated strongly and effectively on Pakistan Army posts".

Major Ambadas, 32, belonged to Bhandara, Maharashtra and is survived by wife Ms Avoli Moharkar.

The soldiers belonged to 2 Sikh Regment under 120 Infantry Brigade Battalion. "Major Moharkar Prafulla Ambadas, Lance Naik Gurmail Singh, Lance Naik Kuldeep Singh and Sepoy Pargat Singh were grievously injured in firing and later succumbed to their injuries".

If you're looking to do any kind of box office prediction for 2018, it'd be wise not to leave the sequel to Mamma Mia! out. And someone else tweeted that " Cher is in the new Mamma Mia movie & it's gonna save 2018".

He said two other injured soldiers are undergoing treatment at the hospital.

In recent years, Kashmiris have openly supported anti-India rebels and sought to protect them by engaging troops in street clashes during military operations against the rebels.

Nuclear-armed India and Pakistan claim the divided Kashmir region in its entirety and have fought two wars over it.

The skirmishes have led to killings of soldiers as well as civilians.

Last year, Indian and Pakistani soldiers engaged in some of the worst fighting along the Line of Control since the two countries agreed to the cease-fire accord.

Four army men including a Major were killed in Pakistani troops firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday.

Defence spokesman in Jammu said, "An officer and three jawans were martyred as the Pakistan Army indulged in unprovoked ceasefire violation".
