Pakistan Demands Evidence of Alleged Beheading of Two Indian Troops

The Director General Military Operations (DGMO) of Pakistan and India on Tuesday discussed the issue after they established routine weekly Hotline Contact, the Pakistan army spokesman said.

"Pakistan rejected India's allegations of ceasefire violation and mutilation of bodies of Indian soldiers", the army statement said.

"In a unsoldierly act by the Pak army the bodies of two of our soldiers in the patrol were mutilated", the Indian army said in an English-language statement, referring to Pakistani forces.

According to officials, any involvement of Lashkar, even when they were assisted by the Pakistan army, will give Pakistan the benefit of "high deniability". The Army Chief was briefed by the Corps Commander Lt Gen J S Sandhu on the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

The army said the DGMO also conveyed India's concern about the presence of Border Action Team (BAT) training camps in close vicinity of the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan- Occupied Kashmir. Both men were part of a team patrolling the Line of Control or de facto border in the Poonch sector last morning when two posts were assaulted with rockets and mortar bombs.

India's security forces have suffered a double blow in Kashmir, with five police officers shot dead in a bank raid and two soldiers killed in an attack on the border with Pakistan. Constable Rajinder Singh of the BSF suffered injuries in the attack.

Giving details of the attack, he said, "A joint team of the Army and the BSF is deployed in Krishna Ghati sector for boundary protection".

The attack occurred in Kulgam district of south Kashmir, where protests against Indian rule have flared in recent weeks.

Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, by engaging in such action, Pakistan was scripting its own destruction.

"This is a reprehensible and an inhuman act".

The Congress leader urged the Centre to "send out a strong signal to such inimical forces against indulging in such atrocities and barbaric acts".

"Everybody knows it well that this incident (yesterday) took place immediately after the visit of the Pakistan army chief", Choubey said while talking to reporters at the BSF Frontier Headquarters here.

He said the killing of the two soldiers and beheading them showed frustration of the Pakistan military and asserted that it will never be able to justify the action.
