Teach Pak a lesson says soldier's father killed in Pak firing

A day after Pakistani troops killed four Indian soldiers including Sepoy Pargat Singh, his father exhorted the Centre to avenge the killing of his son and other soldiers.

Pargat Singh was one of the four soldiers killed in a ceasefire violation along the Line of Control in Keri sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district. "Our government must give a befitting reply to Pakistan. Why is our government not taking any action? They must teach them a lesson," Pargat's father Rattan Singh said.

Pargat Singh's mother Sukhwinder Kaur was distraught, so was his widow Ramanpreet Kaur.

"He telephoned me yesterday but disconnected the call abruptly.. later on, this news (about his killing) came," an inconsolable Ramanpreet Kaur said.

Rattan Singh said his son wanted to join the army from an early age. "Our entire family is proud of his sacrifice," he said.

The soldier leaves behind a five-year-old son, whose photograph in army-like fatigue adorns one of the room of the house where the family lives in Ramba village in Haryana's Karnal district.  

Army says no mutilation of bodies

Meanwhile army on Sunday clarified that the bodies of its personnel killed in firing by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control were not mutilated and the injury marks were due to splinters and gunshots.

"The injuries suffered are due to splinters and gunshots sustained due to firing by the enemy on the patrol," army sources said here.
