India ‘hits back’, kills 3 Pakistan soldiers

Indian security forces hit back at Pakistan, hard, overnight Monday, killing three Pakistani soldiers across the LoC in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, and separately, neutralising a wanted Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district.

In retaliation for a ceasefire violation on Saturday, the Indian Army undertook an operation very reminiscent of last year's surgical strikes, reports The Times of India today.

They crossed over to Pakistan occupied Kashmir early Tuesday, to Rakhchikri in the Rawlakot sector, and killed three Pakistani troops while also wounding one, agencies reported.

Thus, India avenged the unprovoked and indiscriminate shelling and firing in the Keri sector by Pakistani troops on Saturday, which led to three soldiers and one Army Major being martyred.

In a separate operation, a crack team of Jammu and Kashmir police cordoned off a house in the Samboora area of Pulwama district where two JeM terrorists were believed to be holed up, police said.

In the ensuing encounter, wanted Jaish terrorist Noor Mohammad Tantray was killed. Tantray had been out on a parole since 2015. He was the mastermind of a suicide attack at Srinagar airport earlier this year.
