2 Pak soldiers killed in ‘calibrated’ LoC op | India News

NEW DELHI: The Indian Army shot dead two Pakistan soldiers in “a calibrated retaliatory operation” along the LoC at Tangdhar, in J&K, on Tuesday night, soon after one of its jawans was killed in a counter-infiltration operation in the sector.

“The retaliatory action was taken after unprovoked ceasefire violations and repeated attempts by the Pak Army to facilitate infiltration in the Tangdhar sector in Kupwara. Our troops used small arms, including LMGs, for the calibrated operation on Tuesday night in which two Pakistani soldiers were killed,” said a senior officer.

Ceasefire violations and firing duels along the LoC, which earlier saw the two armies even deploy light artillery guns, antitank guided missiles and heavy mortars to target each other, have greatly reduced after Indian DGMO, Lt Gen Anil Chauhan, and his Pakistan counterpart, Maj Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza, on May 30 decided to honour the ceasefire pact of 2003.
