New Delhi :  

Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat, who arrived in Srinagar on Monday evening on a two-day visit, will hold a high-level meeting with top officials of the ministry of Defence and Army in the backdrop of barbaric attack committed by  Pakistani troops who killed and mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers in Poonch sector of Jammu.

Two Indian soldiers were killed and their bodies mutilated in an attack by the Pakistani troops on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.

The attack was carried out by the Border Action Team (BAT), which generally comprises Pakistani army personnel and terrorists, under the cover of Pakistani shelling in Krishna Ghati Sector in Poonch district.

Indian Army had vowed an “appropriate” response to the “despicable?act”, which significantly took place a day after Pakistan Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa visited some areas along the LoC and promised support to the Kashmiris.

“Pakistani Army carried out unprovoked rocket and mortar firing on two forward posts on the Line of Control in Krishna Ghati Sector (in Poonch district) this morning,” a defence ministry spokesman had said.
