Indian Army crosses LoC and kills 3 Pak soldiers to avenge the deaths of its own men
As per an ANI report, the Indian Army on Monday crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and killed three Pakistani soldiers.

The attack was in retaliation to the killing of four Indian Army jawans in Keri sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district on Saturday.

However, Pakistan Army's publicity wing, Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR) has claimed that the Pakistan Army soldiers gave a "strong response" to the attack.

ISPR was quoted by Pakistan's Dawn News as saying, "The shelling occurred at Rukh Chakri sector of Rawlakot and received a strong response from Pakistani forces."

ISPR alleged that India had indulged in "unprovoked ceasefire violation" that led to exchange of fire between the two countries' armies.

However, on the contrary, Pakistan has been guilty of violating the ceasefire 881 times along the LoC and the international border in Jammu and Kashmir this year alone, resulting in the deaths of at least 30 people.

On December 19, Minister of State for Home Hansraj Ahir had informed the Parliament that Pakistan had violated the ceasefire along the LoC in J&K 771 times till December 10, and 110 times at the international border.

Four Indian Army soldiers, including a major had been killed on Saturday in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district.

The slain Indian Army officer had been identified as 32-year-old Major Moharkar Prafulla of the 120 Infantry Brigade who hailed from Bhandara district of Maharashtra. Other soldiers killed in Saturday's Rajouri attack included 34-year-old Lance Naik Gurmail Singh from Amritsar, Punjab and 30-year-old Sepoy Pargat Singh of Karnal, Haryana.

India shares a 3,323 km-long border with Pakistan, out of which 221 km forms the international border and 740 km lies along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir.
