Two army personnel killed in mysterious blast while patrolling long LoC in Nowshera

An officer and a soldier of the Indian Army were killed in a mysterious blast near a forward post along the LoC in the Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday. 

Officials said that two army personnel including a lieutenant were critically injured in a blast that took place in the Kalal area of the Nowshera sector when an army team was on patrol duty. The injured personnel were immediately shifted to a nearby military hospital but they succumbed to their wounds. 

They said that the area where the blast occurred is dotted with landmines planted by the Indian army as part of the counter-infiltration arrangement. The nature of the blast was not immediately known, the officials said, without ruling out the possibility of the use of an improvised explosive device (IED) by terrorists to target the army patrol team.
