During the visit to the LoC to review the security situation after the killing of five Indian soldiers in Poonch on Tuesday, the Army Chief pulled up the formation commanders there, Army sources said in New Delhi.

In the earlier incident on January 8, the troops of Pakistan's Special Services Group (SSG) had entered Indian territory and killed two Indian soldiers and beheaded one of them.

After the January incident, the Army Chief had asked his formation commanders to adopt an aggressive stance on the LoC and asked them to respond immediately in case of provocations by Pakistan Army.

"I expect my commanders to be aggressive in the face of firing," Gen Singh had said.

The Army is also checking if there was any violation of standard operating procedures (SOP) by the troops and the unit deployed in that area.

Officials said it was also checking that how the terrorists have been able to dodge the anti-personnel mines laid in the area.
