An Indian army soldier was martyred in ceasefire violation by Pakistan troops at the line of control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir`s Rajouri district on Saturday.

The soldier has been identified as Rohin Kumar. He hailed from the Hamirpur district of Himachal Pradesh.

During the ceasefire, Sepoy Rohin Kumar sustained critical injuries and later succumbed to his injuries, said the Army defence person in a statement.

“Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation on the line of control (LoC) in Rajouri Sector. Own troops responded strongly to the enemy fire. In the incident, Sep Rohin Kumar was critically injured and later succumbed to his injuries,” the statement read.

Pakistan has been violating ceasefire on the LoC with impunity. There have been more than 2,700 ceasefire violations so far this year by Pakistan, in which 21 civilians have been killed and 94 others injured.
