Srinagar/ Jammu: An army jawan was on Friday, 28th October 2016 killed in an encounter with terrorists who later mutilated his body near the Line of Control (LoC) in Machchil Sector of Kupwara district in Kashmir.
One militant was also killed in the gunbattle, army said at Srinagar tonight.
"In an encounter close to the Line of Control this evening, one solider was martyred and one terrorist was killed. The terrorists mutilated the body of the jawan before fleeing back into Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir under the cover of firing by Pakistan Army," an army spokesman said.
He said the incident reflected the barbarism pervading in official and unofficial organisations in Pakistan.
