J&K: Pakistan kills 3 Indian solders near LoC, mutilates body

Jammu, Nov 22 (IBNS) In what is termed as a dastardly act by Pakistan, three Indian soldiers were killed close to the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Machhal sector with one of the bodies found in a mutilated state, prompting the Indian Army to threaten a retribution, officials said on Tuesday.

The army said the body of one soldier has been mutilated, reports said. Mutilation means a soldier has been beheaded. 

NorthernComd.IA tweeted: "#JKOps 3 soldiers killed in action on LC in Machhal. Body of one soldier mutilated, retribution will be heavy for this cowardly act @adgpi."

More details are awaited.

Amid mass anger in India over the Uri attack in Kashmir, India in September carried out surgical strikes crossing the Line of Control (LoC) into Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, targeting terrorist launchpads working from within the neighbouring country.
