The Pakistan Army, on Monday, initiated unprovoked firing on Indian Army posts in Rajouri sector of Jammu and Kashmir at 7:30 am. A jawan and an eight-year-old girl, identified as Sajida, were martyred in the firing by Pakistani troops in Kashmir's Rajouri and Poonch.
In the fire exchange in Rajouri, Naik Muddasar Ahmed, who belongs to J&K's Tral, got injured when mortar shells landed on his bunker. He was then evacuated to the MI room where he succumbed to his injuries.
Naik Muddasar Ahmed was 37 years old and belonged to Pulwama district of J&K. He is survived by his wife Shaheena Muddasar and two children.
The nation will always remain indebted to him for the supreme sacrifice and devotion to duty.
Earlier, Director-General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt. Gen. A K Bhatt spoke to his Pakistani counterpart and conveyed that India reserves the right to retaliate to any cross-border firing along the LoC. The two DGMOs also deliberated on the situation along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, an Army official said.
There have been 23 incidents of ceasefire violations, one BAT (Border Action Team) attack and two infiltration bids by Pakistan in June in which four people, including three jawans, have been killed and 12 injured.
