An patrol was taken by surprise by Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) that had laid an ambush over 250 metres deep inside the Indian territory. Destroying two posts was to send a message that no action will go unpunished.

A local commanders' level hotline contact was established at Rawalakot- Poonch sector on the Line of Control (LoC) on Monday (May 1) night between the army authorities of Pakistan and India. "I want the government to take serious steps instead of merely condemning it", she added.

In November 2016 also, the Pakistani Army was accused of mutilating the body of one of the three soldiers after they were killed in Macheal sector along the LoC in Kupwara district and had vowed "heavy retribution" for the "cowardly act".

"Allegations of mutilation are an Indian attempt to divert the attention of the world from the situation within the [India-held Kashmir] valley", the Pak DGMO told his Indian counterpart, according to the ISPR.

Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, by engaging in such action, Pakistan was scripting its own destruction.

The Pakistan Army violated the ceasefire in various sectors along the LoC in Poonch on April 3, 4, 5, 8, 17 and 19.
