Pakistanis kill two Indian soldiers, tension heightens


Jammu: In a brazen violation of the ceasefire, Pakistani troops intruded into Jammu and Kashmir and killed two Indian soldiers by slitting their throats,  officials said.

Poonch Deputy Commis-sioner A.K. Sahu said the Pakistanis killed the two Indian soldiers and wounded a third. “(The) Pakistani soldiers ... slit the throats of two army soldiers.”

Army sources told IANS that the Pakistani troops took away the weapons of the dead Indian soldiers: Sudhakar Singh and Hemraj of 13 Rajputana Rifles.
