Bodies of soldiers to be brought to their villages in Jammu today
The bodies of two Army soldiers who were killed by Pakistani army snipers on the LoC in Kupwara district will be brought to their native place in Jammu on Friday.

Lance Naik Ranjit Singh, from Burn village in Bhalwal area, and rifleman Satish Bhagat, from Gurhasinghu village in Shamachak area, were killed in sniper fire at a forward post in Keran sector of Kupwara district at around 2.20 PM Wednesday.

Their killing comes close on the heels of shooting of seven Amarnath pilgrims on Monday in Anantnag as terror attacks and truce violations have spiked in Kashmir since Hizbul ultra Burhan Wani was gunned down on July 8 last year.

Northern Army chief Lt Gen Devraj Anbu paid his respects to the two soldiers and offered condolences to their families.

Singh is survived by his wife Neha Devi and Bhagat by his mother Kamlesh Kumari.

Army Chief General Bipin Rawat visited Srinagar on Wednesday to take stock of the security scenario in Kashmir.

General Rawat had given enough indication to the top commanders to counter terrorism with a firm resolve.
