Indian Army guns down Pakistani soldier trying to cross LOC to carry out terror op

The Army recovered a Pak government ID card from the incident.

The Indian Army gunned down a Pakistani soldier on Saturday, while he was trying to infiltrate the Line of Control (LoC) in the Keran sector of Jammu & Kashmir.

"An attempt by the Pakistan Army's Border Action Team was made yesterday in Keran sector. Swift action by troops on the LoC foiled the bid and eliminated the terrorist – a Pakistan national," Major General AS Pendharkar, GOC 28 Infantry Division, said on Sunday.

He said that a hotline communication has been made to the Pakistani Army to take back the dead body.

Major General Pendharkar said the infiltration attempt was spotted early. "Ambushes were laid and the infiltrator eliminated. The body was recovered, with one AK rifle, ammunition, and seven grenades. Surveillance of the area is still in progress," he said.

A search of his belongings revealed a Pakistan national ID card and vaccination certificates issued by that country's Ministry of Health. The photo on the card shows the man in a Pakistan armed forces uniform.

Gen Pendharkar said the incident clearly establishes that Pakistan continues to sponsor cross-border terror. A hotline communication has been made to the Pakistan Army from our side, asking them to take back the body of the killed individual," said Gen Pendharkar.
