Four Indian Soldiers Killed in India-controlled Kashmir

Pakistan violates LoC ceasefire in Poonch

"While direct methods include taking aim and firing, indirect methods involve artillery fire and mortar shelling which will inflict heavier damage to the Pakistani posts", said a senior Indian Army officer, requesting anonymity. Pakistan said it retaliated after Indian forces killed two civilians and wounded several others.

More than 14 people have been killed in Pakistani shelling on the LoC and the global border since January 17.

Mohammad Faisal summoned Singh and "condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations" by Indian forces, the Foreign Office said.

He said the Indian side should permit UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.

- Rifleman Ram Avtar, 28, of Baraka village in Gwalior, was also killed in the ceasefire violations in Rajouri on Saturday. "An army man was injured in the cross-border firing", he said. Pakistani forces had violated ceasefire 860 times in 2017. India says Pakistani ceasefire violations so far this year have already reached 240.

Jammu and Kashmir Assembly was adjourned for 10-minutes by Speaker during the Zero Hour today after the members protested the Pakistani troops firing and shelling and cornered the government.

Despite a 2003 ceasefire, India and Pakistan regularly trade fire across the so-called Line of Control (LoC), the military demarcation between the Indian and Pakistani controlled parts of Kashmir.

Captain Kapil Kundu from Haryana was killed just six days before his 23rd birthday, army officials said.

He added that Turkey as chair of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) had taken a "strong moral and ethical position" to send a fact-finding mission to Kashmir.

Many noted that there have been 240 incidents of ceasefire violations along the LoC and the International Border in a little over a month this year, which is more than the violations in all of 2015 and 2016 at 152 and 228, respectively.

We raised the issue of continuous firing and shelling along LoC and IB wherein our soldiers are getting martyred every day and the civilian population is facing the brunt of the escalation of tension, Rana said.
