It was today revealed by the Northern Command, Indian Army, that in a cowardly act, the Pakistan Army had mutilated the dead body of 2 martyred Indian soldiers. The incident was said to take place today, i.e. on 1st May 2017, in the Krishna Ghati sector. News of this dastardly act was broken on social media by the Northern Command, Indian Army’s official twitter account.
A short press release was tweeted out by the army elaborating the sequence of events:

As specified in the release, Paksitan is said to have carried out unprovoked rocket and mortar firing on Indian posts. This happened along the line of control in the Krishna Ghati sector. The release further stated that, simultaneously, a BAT action was launched on a patrol operating between the two posts.
This is not the first time Pakistan had resorted to such unsoldierly conduct. In November last year, an Indian soldier was beheaded in Kashmir and two others killed by Pakistani commandos who crossed the Line of Control at Machil. Just three weeks before that, Sepoy Mandeep Singh was beheaded not far from the spot.
Back then too, the Indian army had promised “heavy retribution” for this event. It was reported that within hours of the above incident, the army launched an aggressive counter offensive on Pakistan. Brigadier, Northern Command, S Gotra had said tha India Army launched a counter offensive along the LoC. Indian Army posts are responding strongly and giving a befitting reply, Defence PRO Manish Mehta said.
On the very next day, news broke out that Pakistan had admitted that it lost three Army personnel, including a Captain after the Indian Army launched a fire assault against Pakistani posts at different points along the LoC. Some similar action can be expected this time too by the army, especially since they have promised an ‘appropriate response’.
