"You should have faith in the Army," he told reporters here when asked to comment about yesterday's incident.

In a cross-LoC attack by suspected Pakistani terrorists, the three soldiers were killed, with body of one of them being mutilated in the second such incident in less than a month.

Following the ambush, Army's Northern Command spokesman said the "retribution will be heavy for this cowardly act".

This was the second such incident of mutilation of the body of an Indian soldier in the same sector since October 28.

On that day, terrorists, aided by the cover fire by Pakistani Army, had crossed the Line of Control and killed an Indian army jawan and mutilated his body.

One attacker was killed in that incident.
