SRINAGAR -- Two army jawans were killed in firing by the Pakistan Rangers at Indian posts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Gurez sector of north Kashmir's Bandipora district on Monday.
The firing lasted for around two hours from 12noon-2 pm.
The army troopers, who were attacked with 36 Rashtriya Rifles (RR), were killed when Pakistan Rangers targeted forward posts at Tarbal in Gurez sector.
The slain troopers have been identified as Tariq Ahmad Lone, a resident of Bakhtoor Gurez, and Waseem Ahmad Lone, a resident Mantra in Bandipora.
Meanwhile, the forces manning the fence along the additional reinforcement of army's 3 and 13 Sikh Regiments have launched a search operation in the area as they suspect that taking advantage of the firing by Pakistan some militants might have sneaked into India.
