Srinagar: Pakistani forces killed two Indian soldiers and mutilated their bodies along the Line of Control on Monday morning, the army’s Northern Command said while promising to “appropriately respond” to the “despicable act”.

The attack was carried out by the Border Action Team (BAT) of the Pakistan Army under the cover of heavy mortar shelling on two forward posts in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district, said a statement from the army’s Northern Command.

army sources identified Naib subedar Paramjit Singh, a junior commissioned officer (JCO), and Border Security Force head constable Prem Sagar as the dead. Two other BSF soldiers on patrol with them survived .

The firing began at 8.25am, they said, identifying Pakistan’s 647 Mujahid Battalion deployed on the forward defence line as the source.

The Indian government strongly condemns this barbaric act and the country has full confidence and faith in the armed forces, which will react appropriately, defence minister Arun Jaitley said.
