New Delhi, April 17: Suspected Terrorists on Tuesday opened fire at Army patrol in Pulwama’s Tral town of South Kashmir, a news agency ANI reported. Reportedly, the area has been cordoned off. Security forces have launched a manhunt to nab the terrorists. Further details are awaited in the incident.
On Monday, one Army porter was killed in a ceasefire violation initiated by Pakistan. Pakistan troops resorted to unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector of Baramulla district.
Last week, two army personnel were killed by Pakistan Army in Sunderbani sector of Rajouri district. This attack came four days after Pakistani forces injured an Army officer during ceasefire violation. Earlier too, the Pakistan army killed a soldier and injured four other security personnel in the Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district.
Both New Delhi and Islamabad blame each other for resorting to unprovoked firings. The Himalayan region of Kashmir has been a bone of contention between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan since both gained independence in 1947.
