Indian administrators have promised to revenge the murder of three of its army personnel in the disputed Kashmir zone as relations with Pakistan continue to deteriorate. State representatives mentioned that militants from across the border had launched an offensive on Indian troops and disfigured a soldier’s body. Pakistan on the other hand accused India of shelling a passenger bus wherein eight civilians were slain. Both nations are currently incriminating each other of violations against the 2003 Kashmir truce agreement. Tensions first arose in September when terrorists bombarded an Indian army station.
Last Tuesday, the Press Trust of India reported an ambush on a counter-infiltration army group that was overseeing the setting up of barricades along the forest belt in Machil zone in Kupwara district. The Pakistani authority have since refuted the accusation. Indian Army spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia asserts that heavy retribution will be overseen for the atrocity. Since the attack, Human Rights Groups have released accounts of heavy artillery use by both sides along the border.
