Jammu: A Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) of the Indian Army was martyred on Wednesday in firing by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir.
According to a source, Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire and opened fire at forward posts in the Keri sector, drawing retaliation from the Indian Army.
The JCO was critically injured in the Pakistani firing and later succumbed to injuries. Pakistan also suffered casualties in the retaliatory action but the exact details are awaited, the source added.
This was the second such incident in the past four days.
On August 30, a JCO was killed on Sunday in firing by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir.
The firing from across the border in the Nowshera sector was unprovoked and responded strongly by the Indian Army, a defence spokesman said.
