An Army officer was killed and a soldier suffered injuries on Saturday while defusing an improvised explosive device along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri sector of Jammu and Kashmir. 

The IED was apparently planted by "enemy forces within Indian territory" in Naushera sector and set off when an Army officer, along with his men, was patrolling the area, officials said. 

The blast killed the officer and injured a soldier who was evacuated to hospital, the officials said.

In one of the deadliest terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir's three decades of militancy, a suicide bomber rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into a CRPF bus in Pulwama district, killing at least 40 personnel and leaving many critically wounded, on Thursday. The Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the attack.
