Army denies reports of fresh Pak attacks on J&K border

02 January 2015

The Indian Army today refuted reports of 'unusual' Pakistani troop movements along the sensitive border in Jammu & Kashmir.

Earlier reports had suggested that troop movements by Pakistan forces were spotted along the Line of Control in the region.

"The Indian Army has detected no troop build-up or unusual movement from Pakistani army," the Indian Army said in a statement.

Late on Wednesday night, Pakistani troops targeted 12 Indian posts along the international border in Jammu and Kashmir, killing a jawan (private) of India's Border Security Force. In retaliatory fire, Indian troops killed four Pakistan Rangers.

Meanwhile, BSF officials claimed that 50-60 terrorists were waiting to sneak into the Indian side in Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan.

BSF director-general D K Pathak also briefed home minister Rajnath Singh about the ceasefire violations by Pakistan in the Samba sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

Pathak said one BSF jawan was killed in the unprovoked and premeditated Pakistani firing.
