One Indian army soldier, identified as Chandu Babu Lal, has been captured as he tried to sneak into Pakistan territory along with 15 other armed personnel at Nakial Sector. However, prompt retaliation from the Pakistan Army forced the others Indian army men to run back. The army recovered explosives and arms from the arrested soldier.
Chandu Lal belongs to 37 Rashtriya Rifles. India claims that its soldier “inadvertently” crossed into the border.
India earlier claimed that it carried out “surgical strikes ” across the Line of Control, taking out several temporary shelters militants were preparing to use to cross over into the country. Pakistan military spokesperson categorically denied any such strike taking place and said India mischaracterized the cross-border firing just to ‘satisfy their public’.
