Border guarding forces from either side exchanged candies on the International Border in Jammu.

Indian Army has claimed that Pakistani troops killed two Indian soldiers in a surgical strike along the Line of Control (LoC), reported Nawa-e-Waqt.

"The Pakistani army initiated unprovoked and indiscriminate firing from small arms and automatic weapons and shelling of mortar along the LoC in Bhimbher Gali (BG) sector in Rajouri district from 20:15pm", a defence spokesman said. A jawan was injured in back-to-back ceasefire violations by the Pakistani Army on Sunday.

Earlier on Thursday, in the third such attack this year, a team of Pakistani special forces sneaked 600 metres across the LoC into the Poonch sector and killed two Indian troopers and lost one Border Action Team (BAT) member in retaliatory action.

The officer said it is matter of investigation whether the camera was live connected with Pakistani army establishments across the border.

Half are women, many candidates are young, and they are often unknown to most of the voters in their districts. Others parties will share the rest.

In a similar incident, the Pakistani army opened unprovoked shelling and firing in Poonch district of the state today.

On May 1, an Indian soldier and a BSF trooper were killed and their bodies mutilated near the LoC, in Jammu and Kashmir, in an action which the Indian Army said was carried out by a Pakistani BAT team inside Indian territory.

The fresh skirmishes come just days after two Indian were killed in a cross-border ambush near the Line of Control, less than 10 km from the town of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir.

The intruder's body also had a head-band mounted camera to possibly record their plan to commit some atrocity, which could have included the beheading of an Indian soldier.
