Jammu, Aug 7 :  Army Chief Gen Bikram Singh was today briefed about the security situation in the wake of killing of five Indian jawans along the Line of Control in Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir.





Along with senior commanders of various formations, Gen Singh left for Nagrota-based 16 Corps headquarters, where he was brief by senior Army officers led by GoC-In-C Lt Gen Sanjeev Chachra and GOC, 16 Corps, Lt Gen D S Hooda.  He was also briefed about attacks, incidents of firing and ceasefire violations which occurred before yesterday's attack.  Soon after his arrival from New Delhi this morning, Gen Singh laid wreaths on the coffins draped in the tri-colour at the Technical Airport in Jammu.

In a provocative attack, a group of 20 heavily-armed men led by Pakistani troops entered 450 metres into the Indian territory in Poonch sector yesterday and ambushed a patrol killing five Indian soldiers.

The five jawans martyred were 35-year-old Naik Prem Nath of Chappra (Bihar), 29-year-old Lance Naik Shambhu Saran of Bhojpur (Bihar), 27-year-old Sepoy Vijay Kumar Rai of Patna (Bihar), 23-year-old Sepoy Ragunandan of Chhapra (Bihar) and 36-year-old Naik Pundalik Mane of Kolhapur (Maharashtra).
