Following the attempt of armed intrusion by Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) in Poonch which was foiled earlier today, former union home secretary and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP R.K. Singh on Thursday hailed the Indian patrolling team at the border, citing that it makes it hard for the Pakistan Army to enter.
The Indian Army has been retaliating strongly to the ceasefire violation in the Khari Karmara areas of the sector. This was the third time BAT has struck in Poonch this year.
"Pakistan's BAT team intruded 600 metre within Indian side of Line of Control and 200 metre from their own posts", he said.
"While the firefight was going on, Pakistani posts engaged our posts by heavy firing".
"A Border Action Team of 5 to 7 heavily-armed men, under the cover of Pakistani firing, entered 600 meters inside the LoC in Gulpur forward area in Poonch sector around 2 PM and launched a fierce attack on Army patrol party with several types of weapons", the official said.
In the incident two soldiers were killed and another sustained injuries, he said.
