A junior commissioned officer (JCO) was killed on Tuesday morning in Pakistani shelling along the Line of Control (LoC) in the union territory (UT) Jammu & Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

The deceased has been identified as Subedar Sukhdev Singh.

“The JCO sacrificed his life in the line of duty in Pakistan’s ceasefire violation in the Nowshera sector of Rajouri district,” said a spokesperson of the Indian Army.

India retaliated to Pakistan’s unprovoked act, he added.

“Late Monday Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation on the line of control (LoC) in Nowshera Sector, District Rajouri. Indian troops responded strongly to the enemy fire. In the incident, Subedar Sukhdev Singh was critically injured and later succumbed to his injuries”, he said.

“Subedar Sukhdev Singh was a brave, highly motivated and a sincere soldier. The nation will always remain indebted to him for his supreme sacrifice and devotion to duty,” added Col Anand.
