An Army soldier was killed in firing by Pakistani troops on Thursday, while a BSF jawan lost his life in a sniper attack along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.
"Our troops retaliated in adequate measure to the Pakistani aggression," he added.
The officials also said a BSF jawan was killed and another injured in sniper fire from across the LoC in the Sunderbani sector.
The two jawans were evacuated in a helicopter to the nearest medical facility, but Biswas succumbed to injuries, they added.
The condition of the other jawan is stable, the officials said.
