The sources also said that in the same operations, 28 Indian soldiers also lost their lives.
Pakistani Army shows themselves as civilian casualties in certain cases but they usually do not acknowledge the deaths of its own soldiers, said by the sources. They also referred to the Kargil war when Pakistani army declined to accept the casualties even when India provided all the proofs.
