Punitive fire assaults undertaken across LoC to counter Pak: Indian Army

Recently, Indian Army had killed four millitants in a fierce encounter as the Army successfully foiled an infiltration bid in Naugam sector of the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, Press Trust of India reported on Sunday.

The objective of the engagement was to "bring down the number of terrorists in Kashmir so that local youth are not encouraged to take up arms", Major General Narula said. "We fear an uptick in infiltration attempts as the snow melts and passes [on the mountains and valleys] open up".

"Punitive fire assaults are being undertaken across the LoC".

The Indian Army "proactively dominates" the LoC, Narula added, iterating peace in Jammu and Kashmir is the motive. The army had at the time said that Pakistan will have to face consequences, and promised a response action at a time and place of its choosing. Party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, "We salute the valour and sacrifice of Indian Army". Three soldiers were also martyred in the operation. Who will ensure that sufficient pressure is put on Pakistan that makes them stop sending terrorists into India day in and day out.

The Army official expressed concern over Pakistani aid to infiltrators.

On May 14, the Pakistan Army initiated indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics, 82 mm and 120 mm mortars along the LoC in Chiti Bakri area of Rajouri sector in Jammu and Kashmir. The operation was conducted in the Nowshera sector, he added.
