Pakistan also violated ceasefire in Hiranagar and Abdullian in RS Pura sectors of the state, ANI reported.
A terrorist on Friday mutilated the body of an Indian soldier after killing him and then fled into PoK. He was supported by cover fire from Pak army posts, the Indian Army said.
The army said a gunfight took place close to the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir`s Machhal sector on Friday evening, in which one soldier and a terrorist were killed.
"In a despicable act, the terrorists mutilated the body of the Indian army soldier before fleeing into POK, supported by covering fire from Pakistani Army posts.
"This barbarism is a true reflection which pervades official and non-official organisations across the border. This act will invite an appropriate response," it said.
The development comes even as the Border Security Forces have killed at least 15 Pakistani soldiers in the past one week in retaliatory cross-border firing.
Meanwhile, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and the PMO have been briefed about the situation on the border.
