Jammu & Kashmir: 5 Indian army troopers killed on Kashmir LoC

6th Aug 2013

SRINAGAR, Indian-controlled Kashmir, (Xinhua): Five Indian army troopers were killed early Tuesday by Pakistani troops during an ambush on line-of-control (LoC), which divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan controlled parts, officials said.

Reports said Pakistani troopers have entered Indian-controlled part near Sarla in frontier Poonch District, around 185 km south of Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian-controlled Kashmir, to carry out the deadly attack.

The region’s Chief Minister Omar Abdullah wrote on his Twitter account that he was briefed about the killings in morning.

“Was briefed early this morning about news that five of our soldiers had been killed on the LoC. My heartfelt condolences to their next of kin,” Abdullah tweeted.

Kashmir, the region divided between India and Pakistan, is claimed by both in full. Since their Independence from the British, the two countries have fought three wars, two exclusively over Kashmir.
