The Indian Army on Monday issued a stern warning to its Pakistani counterpart, asking the Pakistan military to restrain terrorists operating from its soil.

The latest warning came a day after three Indian Army soldiers were killed in a Pakistani BAT attack in the Sunderbani sector of Jammu and Kashmir. The intruders attacked an Indian patrol team, which in retaliatory strike gunned down two Pakistani intruders. Two AK-47s, ammunition and war-like stores were recovered.

“The intruders were wearing combat uniform. But their identity could not be ascertained. Pakistan Army has been informed through established communication channels to take over the bodies of the hostile Pakistani nationals,” Indian Army sources said.

“Since talks between the two DGMOs on May 29 (held at the behest of Pakistan), Indian Army has been maintaining utmost restraint to uphold the ceasefire along the Line of Control despite regular provocative actions from across,” said an officer.

“However, the Pakistani Army has been vigorously attempting to send terrorists across the LoC. Since May 30, seven infiltration bids have been foiled by the Indian Army in which 23 terrorists have been killed. Intelligence reports suggest a large concentration of terrorists on launch pads across the border desperate to infiltrate before the onset of winter,” sources said.

The disputed border between India and Pakistan is a military hot zone that witnessed heavy exchanges of fire from both sides notwithstanding the ceasefire agreement between the two countries.
