NEW DELHI: In the wake of armed intruders from Pakistan and attack on an Indian armed force patrol team in Sunderbani sector of Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian Army on Monday warned Pakistani Army to restrain the terrorists operating from its soil.

On Sunday around 1320 hours, five to six Pakistani armed intruders crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and fired on the Indian Army Patrol team in the Sunderbani Sector of Jammu Region.

Three Indian Army soldiers were killed and one suffered injuries in the unprovoked cross-border action by Pakistan.

During the ensuing fire fight, two intruders were also killed.

The intruders were wearing combat uniform.

However, their identity could not be ascertained, sources in the Indian Army said.

Pakistan Army has been informed through established communication channels to take over the bodies of the hostile Pakistani Nationals, the sources added.

At the behest of Pakistan, the Director General of Military Operation (DGMO) level talks between both the countries were held on May 29 in which Indian Army has been maintaining utmost restraint to uphold the ceasefire along the LoC despite regular provocative actions from across, the sources said.

However, Pakistan Army has been vigorously attempting to send terrorists across the LoC, the sources said.

Since May 30, seven infiltration bids have been foiled by the Indian Army in which 23 terrorists were killed.

As per the reports, there is a concentration of large number of terrorists in the launch pads desperate to infiltrate before the onset of snow.
