Pakistan attempted once again to send in its Border Action Team across the Line of Control on Thursday but the major attack was foiled in the Poonch sector.

"The martyred soldiers were part of an Army patrolling party moving in own area along the LoC when the BAT intruders attacked them", sources said. Today's incident is not the first, but the third this year, after which the government needs to take an action.

The Pakistani attackers came up to 200 meters near the Indian posts. "This was BAT's third attempt this year in the area", Jammu-based defence spokesperson said, adding, "Unfortunately, our two courageous jawans were martyred during heavy exchange of fire". "In the gunfight, two jawans were killed", the army said. In a unsoldierly act by the Pak Army, the bodies of two of our soldiers in the patrol were mutilated.

While the firefight was going on, the Pakistani posts resorted to heavy firing.

Earlier in the day, the Indian Army gunned down two terrorists and foiled an infiltration bid in Kupwara's Keran sector of Jammu and Kashmir along the LoC.
