At least 26 Indian soldiers have been killed in attacks by Pakistan Army along the Line of Control (LoC), defacto border between India and Pakistan in Indian administered Kashmir in last three years.

New Delhi, Aug 26/Nationalturk: Indian Defence Minister A K Antony Monday revealed that 26 Indian soldiers have been killed in attacks by Pakistan Army along the Line of Control (LoC), defacto border between India and Pakistan in Indian administered Kashmir in last three years.

“26 army men have been killed in attacks by Pakistan Army along the LoC in last three years,” Antony told Lok Sabha, lower house of Indian parliament today.

He said in 2010, nine army men were killed along LoC in Pakistan army attacks. “Similarly, in 2011, 5 army men were killed; in 2012, 3 army men were killed while 9 soldiers have been killed in Pakistani firing till August this year”.

9 Indian soldiers have been killed this year so far

Giving details of killing of five Indian soldiers on August 6, Antony said, “On the night of 5/6th August 2013, a group of the specialist troops of Pakistan Army from the Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) crossed the LoC and attacked a patrol party of Indian Army in Poonch sector in Indian administered Kashmir. “In the ensuing fire fight, five Indian soldiers were killed and another injured”.

After the killing of five Indian soldiers, the tension between nuclear armed South Asian neighbours India and Pakistan have increased. Both the sides have accused each other of unprovoked firing causing death of civilians and soldiers.

Referring to measures taken to prevent cross-border attacks by Pakistani army, Indian defence minister said, “Indian Government is closely monitoring activities along the LoC.  Government is regularly taking up the issue of ceasefire violation with Pakistan through established mechanism like hotlines, flag meetings, talk between Director General of Military Operations (DGMOs) and through diplomatic channels”.

Antony said Indian Army has adopted a robust counter-infiltration strategy along the LoC, which is a mix of technology and human resources to check infiltration effectively.
