Pakistan attempted once again to send in its Border Action Team across the Line of Control on Thursday but the major attack was foiled in the Poonch sector.

Earlier in the day, an attempt of armed intrusion by Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) in Poonch this year was foiled at 2 p.m.

The Indian Army is giving a bifitting reply to the ceasefire violation that is taking place in Khari Karmara areas of the Poonch sector. "While the firefight was going on, Pakistani posts engaged own posts by heavy firing".

The martyred soldiers were identified as Naik Jadhav Sandip Sarjerao, 35, of Aurangabad, and Sepoy Mane Savan Balku, 25, of Kolhapur, a defence spokesperson said in Mumbai late on Thursday.
