Pakistani troops cross Line of Control, behead and mutilate one Indian soldier

NEW DELHI: An Indian soldier was beheaded and another killed by Pakistani troops after they crossed over into Indian territory in the Mendhar sector of Jammu & Kashmir on Tuesday, in a grim reminder of the brutality perpetrated during the 1999 Kargil conflict which can make peace making even more difficult.

The "border action team" of the Pakistani Army took advantage of the thick fog in the thickly-forested mountainous region to sneak 500 to 600 metres across the Line of Control (loC) before they were driven back after a fierce gun-battle and close-quarter combat with Indian troops that went on for over 30 minutes shortly before noon on Tuesday.

...

After the gun battle, the bodies of Lance-Naiks Hemraj and Sudhakar Singh, part of an "area domination patrol" of the 13 Rajputana Rifles, were found. One of them was badly "mutilated". Although the Army did not give more details of the barbarism, sources said the retreating Pakistani soldiers had chopped off the "head" of one of the Indian soldiers and taken it back with them.

...

Predictably, the Pakistan military denied its troops had crossed over into India or indulged in a ceasefire violation on Tuesday. "It looks like Indian propaganda to divert world attention from the raid conducted by Indian troops on one of our posts on Sunday, in which one of our soldiers was killed," it said.

In most Indian/Pakistani circles, Kargil was considered a war, not merely a conflict.

The LoC is a mess - then on the other side of the state, Ladakh, China does the same thing.

J&K is a tinderbox.

I was under the impression that China spent most of its energy provoking India in the Arunachal border area, that the Ladakh area line of control was unofficially "settled" between the two countries. Not true?

Yes and no. I think diplomatically it is but random Chinese troops seem to wander across the border in Ladakh about every 3-4 months. The main difference is that the Chinese haven't engaged in crossfire.

I shouldn't have said they do the "same thing" - cause so far no bullets - but crossing the border, yeah - it happens.

It appears to be more like "huh - where am I on the ginormous snow covered mountain - #######, too far west!" and then a flurry of local newspaper talk about Chinese invasions.

That's what I thought. The situation on the Arunachal side is different though. It's hot there. Bullets and stuff.
