Pakistan's BAT attack in Jammu-Kashmir : Two Indian soldiers and one attacker killed

Pakistani troops today carried out an attack 600 metres inside the Indian territory in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir, killing two jawans and losing one of their men in the retaliatory action. One of the attacker was injured in the Indian retaliatory action and his body was extricated under the cover of heavy firing by the Pakistani troops from their posts across the LoC, an Army official said. The Border Action Team (BAT), which generally comprises special forces of the Pakistan Army and some terrorists, carried out the attack at around 2 pm with the aid of cover fire by the Pakistani troops from their posts, he said.

The Pakistani attackers came up to 200 meters near the Indian posts. During the attack, the Pakistani troops resorted to firing in Gulpur-Karmara-Chakan-Da-Bagh area along the LoC. The armed intruders targeted an 'area domination patrol' of the Indian Army, triggering a gunfight, the official said. The Indian troops killed one of the attackers and injured another whose extrication was facilitated by the cover fire by the Pakistani troops from their posts. In the firefight, two Indian soldiers were killed. They were 34-year-old Naik Jadhav Sandip of Aurangabad, Maharashtra and 24-year-old Sepoy Mane Savan Balku of Kolhapur, Maharashtra. Naik Jadhav is survived by wife Ujala and Sepoy Mane by mother Shoba. The Pakistani firing continued till 3.30 pm, the official said, adding the Indian posts retaliated strongly.


This was the third BAT action in Poonch this year. The official said the Indian Army's 'Area Domination Patrol' was "targeted by the armed intruders and exchange of fire occurred." "Pakistan’s BAT team was 600 metres within the Indian side of the LoC and 200 metres from the Indian posts," the official said. The Indian troops retaliated and in the firefight, two Indian jawans were killed, the official said. The Indian troops killed one armed intruder, whose body "is within visual reach", he said. While the firefight was going on, the Pakistani posts resorted to heavy firing, the official said. "The operations are in progress and heavy exchange of fire is going on," he added.
