A fierce firefight took place today at 2 PM between the Indian Army and Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) when the BAT team ambushed a small patrol unit of the BSF in an infiltration bid that was successfully foiled.

The BAT operatives conducted the ambush within 600 meters inside Indian Territory in Poonch sector of Jammu & Kashmir.  The BAT operatives ambushed the Indian Area Domination Patrol (ADP) team which was 200 meters away from Indian posts. The surprise ambush resulted in the death of 2 Indian soldiers while in the action 1 BAT operative was instantly killed. His body was left ‘within visual reach’ as an Indian military official stated to media.

BAT is a brutal specialized unit of the Pakistani forces which consists rouge and brutal minded elite commandos from Pakistan Army, Rangers, and terrorist organizations and used to conduct raids across Indian border to ambush isolated Indian outposts or patrol units of Indian Army and Border Security Force (BSF). Each successful BAT operation ends with a trademark beheading of Indian soldiers and mutilation.

BAT units ambush after a long planning and pattern recognition of the behavior of the soldiers at Indian outposts. The BAT ambush, kill Indian soldiers and go back to Pakistani Territory. All their operations are assisted with heavy cover fire from Pakistani outposts so that ambushed Indian soldiers are isolated from reinforcements and help. The same happened yesterday as well.

BJP’s MLA Ravinder Raina known for his aggressive nationalistic image in Kashmir had been in constant touch with the forces and updated the media on the same. He demanded a strict revenge against the Pakistani forces.

While 2 Indian soldiers were martyred, 1 BAT operative was killed in action and 1 was critically injured and he was taken away into Pakistan by his comrades. Soon heavy firefight began between the Indian and Pakistani outposts and according to latest reports, 4 Pakistani outposts have been completely destroyed by Indian forces.

The primary mission of BAT is to assist in infiltrating the Islamic terrorists into Indian Territory and through its brutal methods instill fear among the patrol units of Indian Army and BSF and most of its operations are conducted in Poonch, Rajauri and Mendhar sectors.  “It’s a clear conspiracy from the Pakistani side. They are trying to infiltrate terrorists through Poonch and Rajouri sector and they are planning a major terrorist attack in Kashmir in upcoming days,” warned Ravinder Raina.
