In a major counter-offensive after Pakistan’s unprovoked firing, the Indian Army on Sunday carried out heavy artillery strikes targeting four terror launch pads and several Pakistani military positions in Neelam Valley in PoK, killing six to ten of their soldiers and as many terrorists, said Army Chief Bipin Rawat.

The Indian retaliation came a day after the Pakistan military resorted to firing in Tangadhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir along the Line of Control (LOC) to assist infiltration by terrorists, killing two Indian Army personnel and a civilian. Three others were also injured in the attack.

According to the report, “All four terror camps have been destroyed, we have caused severe damage,” said Army Chief Bipin Rawat. If Pakistan continued with such activities, the Indian Army would not hesitate to retaliate, the Army chief asserted.

The army targeted the terror camps in Jura, Athmuqam and Kundalsahi among others in PoK using artillery guns, after credible inputs that a large number of terrorists were operating there. According to sources, ten to fifteen terrorists were staying in each of the facilities at the time of the attack, the most significant offensive since India carried out the Balakot strike in February.

On the other hand, a pall of gloom has descended on Padum Bahadur Serestha’s house at Hatighuli in Barpathar, 40 km from Golaghat, with hundreds of people thronging it to voice their solidarity with the family members. Shrestha’s wife, mother including all the family members fainted several times when they were told about death.

“My son Padum Bahadur Shrestha was a brave soldier, he just came home four months ago but now destiny had something else in store. Now his body will arrive, not him,” said the martyred Padum’s mother and cried.

She added, my son left behind his wife and his three children’s but “It is an unfortunate incident, my son died as a martyred, we are proud of him.”

On the other hand, Padum’s wife was completely shattered soon after the incident came to light.

Notably, Padum Bahadur Shrestha was the jawan of the No.39 Gurkha Regiment of the Indian Army.
