    Six Indian army men were feared dead in an avalanche that hit a remote place in Himachal Pradesh's Kinnaur district bordering China today, officials said.

    The body of one soldier has been recovered whereas five bodies were yet to be traced, Kinnaur Deputy Commissioner Gopal Chand said. The avalanche occurred near Shipkala on the Sino-India border, he added.

    The soldiers belong to the Jammu and Kashmir rifles unit of the army.

    Several members of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) were also trapped in the avalanche. However, they have been rescued, Chand added.

    For me these are all LOC deaths, Indian soldiers dying in Pulwama encounter or while defusing IEDs etc. and these recent ones, in my opinion all of these are LOC deaths.

    LOC is very active since last few days, so Indians are facing a dilemma, if they accept these deaths by Pak Army hands in LOC skirmishes, it will first damage Indian Army's fake prestige plus will result mounting more pressure from Indian public who is already enraged due to false flag op by Indian govt in Pulwama.

    Blame it on Pakistan that they had detonated explosives to cause the avalanche
