Pak troops violate ceasefire again, injure brigadier, two soldiers in Tutmari Gali sector

New Delhi, May 25 (ANI): An army brigadier and two soldiers were injured late Friday night when Pakistani troops opened fire on Indian positions, violating the ceasefire along the Line of Control in Tutmari Gali sector in Jammu and Kashmir.

Brigadier Sanjeev Langar and the two soldiers suffered minor injuries, army sources said here on Saturday.

The exchange of fire took place around 7.15 p.m.

India and Pakistan were engaged in a major stand-off in January this year after Pakistani troops along with their Special Forces and LeT terrorists intruded and mutilated the bodies of two soldiers Lance Naiks Sudhakar Singh and Hemraj, and beheaded one of them.

After the incidents, there was tension along the LoC, especially in the Krishna Ghati sector in Jammu where the incident had taken place.

The situation was de-escalated after talks between the Director Generals of Military Operations of India and Pakistan. (ANI)
