The terrorist believed to have been responsible for this gruesome act has also been killed, army sources said.
"This barbarism is a true reflection which pervades official and non-official organisations across the border".
The army said a gunfight took place close to the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Machhal sector on Friday evening, in which one soldier and a terrorist were killed.
Pakistani forces have resorted to frequent shelling and firing to push in terrorists into the Indian side.
With ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops sparking panic in border villages, home minister Rajnath Singh assured the nation that security forces were giving "befitting reply" to firing from across border and that the country will not bow down before anyone. Moreover, the Pakistan Army provided covering fire to the infiltrating terrorists in this incident, officials said.
According to an Indian Army spokesperson, the incident happened late on Friday evening near Kashmir's Kupwara district. "BSF jawans retaliated by firing with AMR (Anti Material Rifle), AGS (Automatic Grenade Launching System) and MMG targeting Pak forward posts". A militants was also killed in this operation. "The menace of terrorism, which has been unleashed on the soil of Pakistan is going to sooner or later devour and consume the perpetrators itself", Singh said.
