Pakistan resorted to unprovoked indiscriminate firing from small arms automatics and shelled mortars.

BAT operations are usually the handiwork of the SSG commandos trained for covert and irregular missions across the LoC, in conjunction with terrorists, after careful reconnaissance and study of vulnerable spots and patrolling patterns of Indian troops.

Pakistani Border Action Team members were armed with "special daggers" to mutilate Indian soldiers and "headband cameras" to record the attack on an Indian patrol party after entering 600 meters across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district, according to reports today.

This was the second ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the past 24 hours.

He said once two of the SSG members were killed, the remaining ones started firing from the other end in which the two Indian soldiers were killed.

Earlier, Pakistan violated ceasefire in Naushera sector twice at 6:30 am and 5:50 pm on Sunday. The body was handed over the local police, Indian army said as quoted by the Indian media.

The Indian Army also retaliated to the attack.

There have been 20 ceasefire violations along the LoC and the International Border in Jammu region in the month of June in which three jawans and one civilian were killed. The Indian army claimed that it had recovered the dead body of the BAT member from the Poonch LoC's Gulpur sector on Friday.
