Two Army jawans were killed today as Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire in the Keran sector of Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, an Army official said here. The jawans were killed in the Pakistani firing, the official said while refusing to be identified. 

Earlier, the same official said that an Indian Army patrol party was ambushed and fired upon by the Pakistani troops, resulting in killing of two soldiers.

The incident comes days after militants on Monday killed seven Amarnath Yatra pilgrims and injured 19 others.
