    India army kills Pakistan soldier - Pakistan army

    (Reuters) - A Pakistani soldier was killed and another injured in a gunfight between Indian and Pakistani troops in Kashmir on Sunday, a disputed incident that could heighten tensions between the nuclear neighbours after a period of rapprochement.

    The Pakistani army said Indian troops had raided their Sawan Patra checkpost in Kashmir, a hotly contested area both countries claim as their own. The Indian military denied its soldiers had attacked a Pakistani position.

    "Pakistan army troops effectively responded and repulsed the attack," a Pakistani army spokesman said in a statement.

    The two sides then exchanged fire across the Line of Control, an internationally recognised line in Kashmir patrolled by troops from both countries, he said.

    Indian army spokesman Colonel Jagadish Dahiya said Indian troops had not crossed the Line of Control. "However, there was a ceasefire violation by Pakistan. Our troops retaliated by firing," Dahiya said.

    "None of our troops crossed the Line of Control. We have no casualties or injuries."

    Attacks across the Line of Control are not uncommon. The two sides sporadically shoot at each other, though far less frequently than they used to.

    India and Pakistan have fought three wars since 1947, when they became independent from Britain. The two countries share many similarities in language and culture, though most of Pakistan's citizens are Muslim and most of India's Hindu.

    Kashmir, and the human rights abuses committed there by Indian troops, is a politically explosive issue in Pakistan. Pakistani security forces have long trained militant groups to attack Indian soldiers.

    The two countries fought their most recent war in 1999, when Pakistani troops crossed the Line of Control and occupied Indian territory in Kargil, but were forced to withdraw.

    TENSION OVERSPILL

    After a period of quiet, relations between the two countries nosedived again in 2008, when a militant squad rampaged through the Indian city of Mumbai, killing 166 people. India accused Pakistan of sheltering the masterminds behind the attack, charges that Pakistan denies.

    The two countries have been slowly repairing relations in recent months. In November, India executed a Pakistani man who was the last surviving perpetrator of the Mumbai attack.

    Last month the two countries signed a deal designed to ease visa restrictions for some citizens to travel between the two countries.

    Tension between the two countries has also spilled over into nearby Afghanistan, which borders Pakistan. India offers military and economic aid there, but many Pakistanis fear this is an attempt to lessen Pakistan's influence.

    The United States has repeatedly urged Pakistan to move against al-Qaeda and militant havens along its Afghan border. Pakistan says it does not have enough troops because so many of them are patrolling the border with India.

    Some U.S. officials also believe Pakistan is unwilling to move against the militants because some elements in Pakistan's security forces would prefer to be able to use the militants to counter Indian influence in Afghanistan after most foreign combat troops have pulled out by the end of 2014.

    Obviously Pakistan tried to provide insurgents with cover fire, not the first time for them, won't be the last time.

    Re: India army kills Pakistan soldier - Pakistan army

    This is very common on LOC. They raid our posts we raid their posts. You guys might remember about one year back pak forces had attacked an Indian post and beheaded two Indian Jawans and took away their heads as trophies. Indian commandos than attacked the same pak post from where these raiders had come and killed each and every pak soldier there.
    This recent raid is in retaliation for the death of a jawan a few days back in the same area. We don't keep any udhaar, toorant jawab aur hisaab saaf. Infact the number of pak soldiers killed is in double digit.

    Re: India army kills Pakistan soldier - Pakistan army

    ^profit? we have lost many more soldiers in cross-border firing because IA is a mature army which shows immense restraint. However pakistan must realize that it is not a one sided competition and that we too can kill their soldiers when we want.

    Congrats to the marksman.

    yup, any additional kill is profit
    You are much more political minded that Military Minded

    You have to understand that,
    War is an Enterprise that needs cold and calculated thinking,
    emotions have no place in war.

    In a war, you fight with a mind as cold as ice with blood as hot as melted iron.
