Pakistan violated Ceasefire along LoC, Army Major, 3 Soldiers Killed

The spokesman said that Major Mohrarkar Praful Ambadas, Lance Naik Gurmail Singh, Lance Naik Gurmeet Singh and Soldier Pargat Singh lost their lives during the ceasefire violation.

Major Moharkar Prafulla Ambadas, aged 32 years, belonged to Bhandara district in Maharashtra and is survived by his wife Avoli Moharkar.

The soldiers belonged to 2 Sikh Regment under 120 Infantry Brigade Battalion.

The troops of India and Pakistan intermittently exchange fire on the 720 km-long LoC and 198 km IB in Kashmir, despite an agreement in 2003 to observe a cease-fire.

Two other personnel also sustained injuries in the firing.

Other soldiers killed were 34-year-old Lance Naik Gurmail Singh from Amritsar, Punjab, who is survived by his wife Kuljit Kaur and a daughter, and 30 year-old Sepoy Pargat Singh of Karnal, Haryana who is survived by his wife Ramanpreet Kaur and a son.

Defence spokesperson colonel NN Joshi described the firing as a ceasefire violation by the neighbouring country. Meanwhile, the army said in a statement that Indian soldiers have responded silently.

Lady Gaga Just Announced Her Las Vegas Residency
She also was spotted attending Lionel Ritchie's Las Vegas show at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood over the weekend. Over the past few years Las Vegas has reinvented itself as the place in the world to see superstar performers.

Kashmir, a Muslim-majority Himalayan region, is held by India and Pakistan in parts and claimed by both in full.

The violence was sparked by the killing of a popular young rebel leader by government forces in July previous year.

Sources said the Pakistani troops fired indiscriminately on army positions for half an hour.

Last year, there were 449 incidents of ceasefire violations in which 13 civilians and 13 security personnel were killed and 83 civilians and 99 security personnel were injured, official figures reveal.

The Pakistani firing on Indian posts came on a day when J&K chief minister Mehbooba Mufti was in Rajouri to meet locals, as part of her public outreach programme.

Singh while expressing condolences with the bereaved families, prayed for eternal peace to the departed souls.
