The Indian army has vowed “heavy retribution” for the killing of its three soldiers in the disputed region of Kashmir on Tuesday.
Army spokesperson Col RAJESH KALIA said the attackers had mutilated the body of one soldier in the Machil sector.
He did not specify if the soldiers were attacked by Pakistani soldiers or militants fighting against Indian rule.
Tensions over the long-running dispute have intensified after an Indian army base was attacked in September.
Both India and Pakistan accuse each other of violating the 2003 ceasefire agreement.
