The deceased jawan was identified as Sepoy Naresh Kumar from the Punjab Regiment, according to Srinagar-based army spokesperson Lt-Col A K Mathur.
In the retaliatory fire by the army, two of the militants were killed and the troops noticed the ultras dragging the two bodies back into the Pakistani side of the LoC, he added.
The incident took place around 1000 hours on Saturday morning near the Khamoosh picket along the Line of Control.
