Indian soldier killed in exchange of fire with Pakistani troops along Kashmir border

An Indian army soldier was killed on Wednesday in exchange of firing with Pakistani troops along the Line of Control in Indian-administered Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

Sepoy Laxman, a resident of Jodhpur in Rajasthan, was the fourth soldier killed this year in exchange of fire with Pakistani troops along the LoC that divides Jammu and Kashmir between the two nuclear armed nations.

“The Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation on the LoC in  Sundarbani sector of Rajouri. Our troops responded strongly to the enemy fire,” the Indian army spokesperson claimed in Jammu.

He said Laxman was critically injured in the firing and later succumbed to his injuries.

Earlier, three Indian Army troops were killed in Pakistani firing along the LoC in January this year. 

Media reports in Pakistan claimed that Indian troops had resorted to unprovoked fire along the defacto border.
