Since Surgical Strikes, Increase In Deaths Of Indian Soldiers And Militants In Valley, LoC: Govt Data


Since the Indian Special Forces carried out surgical strikes in September last year, as many as 69 army soldiers and 178 militants have been killed in the Kashmir Valley and on the LoC so far – a sharp increase in the number of causalities in the last one year.

According to a government data, 38 army personnel were killed between January and September last year — including 19 who died in the Uri attack, which led to the surgical strikes on September 29. On the other hand, 110 militants were killed by the army between January and September last year, reported The Indian Express.

“The increase in the number of militants killed is due to the ascendancy of the security forces and their high morale.
