After almost one and a half months, no Indian can still forget that terrific evening of 14th February, when our CRPF jawans were attacked in Pulwama and around 40 of our officers were martyred. Soon after that, the Indian Air force, on 26th February, retaliated and gave a befitting reply to the cowardly act by the terrorists by attacking their camps in and around Balakot in Pakistan through an incredible air strike. Since then, there is a continuous disturbance at the Jammu and Kashmir border. There has been a constant shelling by the Pakistan forces on the border areas like Poonch, Uri, Rajouri and Pulwama.
The worse to these was the recent ceasefire violation in Poonch sector with heavy shelling and small arms firing targetting especially the civilian areas leading to significant injuries. The constant shelling in Mankote area of Poonch sector resulted in four injuries which are being treated in District hospital at Rajouri.
Yesterday also, the Pakistani forces targeted the same sector in which one BSF inspector and a 5-year old girl died and four others were injured.
Retaliating to the constant inhumane activities by the Pakistani forces on the border, India has also increased the intensity of its firing on the border sectors. Along with this, India has also deployed new sniper rifles along the Line of Control to tackle Pakistani army rifles.
During the firing, after heavy shelling from the Indian side, the media wing of the Pakistani armed forces, ISPR, issued an initial statement informing that three of their troops have been killed during these events along the Rawalkot sector of LoC to which, Indian forces confidently counter argued that the Pakistani forces were downplaying their extent of damage and the death toll was definitely higher than that declared by the officials.
Later today, According to media reports it was found that 10 Pakistani soldiers have been dead during the cross border firing along Rakhchiri sector of Rawalkot. It is also highly commendable that in last ten days Indian Army has killed 16 terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir including the top Laskar commander.
