As per reports received, Shubham Thapa is serving as a constable in 18-Jack Rifle and at present, he is posted at a forward position in J&K. In yet another provocation, Pak army started heavy firing in the wee hours on Monday in Pallanwala sector in Jammu & Kashmir targetting village Bardoh and Batal adjacent to the border.
In one of the mortar attacks from Pakistan, Shubham along with his co Jawans Md. Arif Shafi and Alam Khan Pathan got injured. All the injured Jawans were airlifted and admitted to the Army’s Command Hospital, Udhampur where Arif succumbed to his injuries.
Unprovoked Firing from the side of Pakistan is still continuing at the Line Of Control which is being retaliated by the Indian army. Firing at Indian posts in Jammu & Kashmir is an old gameplan of Pakistan Army which is being carried out to give fire cover to the terrorists trying to infiltrate into the Indian side for their subversive activities.
There are several launching pads along the Line Of Control in Pakistan where there are training centers for the terrorists. Pak army personnel train the terrorists in gurilla warfare and also help them in infiltration. In order to destroy their terror camps, Indian Army had carried out a surgical strike in POK in the year 2016 and more recently in 2018 also an Air Strike was carried out in Balakot area in Khyber Pakhtoonkhwah province of Pakistan.
