Two Army jawans were killed on Friday as Pakistani troops opened heavy fire and shelled mortars along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.
A defence spokesperson said, “The Pakistani army resorted to unprovoked firing on the Line of Control (LoC) in Sunderbani sector of district Rajouri today (Friday).” The Indian Army immediately responded to the unprovoked firing, he added.
