Lt Gen Joshi pays tribute to soldier killed in Pak ceasefire violation in Kashmir

Lt Gen Joshi pays tribute to soldier killed in Pak ceasefire violation in Kashmir

Srinagar, Sep 6 (UNI) Northern Army commander Lt Gen YK Joshi on Sunday paid tribute to a soldier, who was killed in Pakistani ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC) in north Kashmir district of Kupwara.
“#LtGenYKJoshi, #ArmyCdrNC and all ranks salute the supreme sacrifice of Gunner Bhupender; offer deepest condolences to the family,” read a tweet posted by the official twitter handle of Northern Command.
Gunner Bhupender was killed and two others were injured on Saturday when Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire and resorted to indiscriminate firing and shelling in Naugam sector along the LoC.
Defence Ministry spokesperson Colonel Rajesh Kalia told UNI that Pakistan initiated an unprovoked Ceasefire Violation (CFV) along the LoC in Naugam sector on Saturday. “Pakistani troops, violating 2003 ceasefire, targeted forward posts and civilian areas in the sector,” he said, adding three soldiers were injured in the mortar shelling.
He said the soldiers were immediately taken to a hospital, where one of them succumbed. “The two other injured soldiers were evacuated to Army’s 92 Base Hospital in Srinagar,” they said, adding their health condition is stable.
“Befitting response was given to Pak troops,” he added.
Official sources said that Pakistani troops have been violating ceasefire frequently to help infiltrate militants, who are waiting in the launching pads across the LoC in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
