Pak rejects Indian allegation of LoC violation
 
 
 

Pakistan Wednesday rejected the Indian allegation of violation of ceasefire on the LOC in which the Indians alleged that two soldiers were killed.
Military sources Wednesday said that Director General Military Operations of Pakistan army talked to his Indian counterpart on hotline. He rejected Indian army allegations of cross LOC firing by Pakistani troops and killing of any Indian soldier.
The Indian authorities were informed that Pakistan has carried out ground verification and checked and found nothing of this sort happened as being alleged by Indian army.
The Indian DG military operations was told that it is mere propaganda by Indian army and official concerned.
It may be mentioned here that Indian troops raided the Pakistani post on Sunday morning in which a Pakistani soldier Naik Aslam embraced Shahadat. The martyred soldier was buried in his native village in Chakwal on Tuesday.
The sources added that Indians are doing this propaganda and trying to divert attention of the world from that raid and alleging Pakistan for cross border violation.
India on Wednesday said that it will "convey its protest" to Pakistan over the brutal killing of two Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir by Pakistani troops.
"We will convey our protest to the Pakistan government and our Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) will talk to his counterpart in Pakistan," defence minister A K Antony said.
"We are closely monitoring the situation," Antony said.
The minister called the killings by Pakistani troops "highly provocative. The way they have treated the body of the Indian soldiers, it is inhuman".
Meanwhile, external affairs ministry has summoned the Pakistan high commissioner Salman Bashir at noon today.
"We will take this up very firmly with the Pakistan government," external affairs minister Salman Khurshid told Times Now television.
He said the killing and mutilation of the Indian soldiers was "an extremely sensitive matter" and "a matter of great concern to everyone".
"These are matters on which every dimension has to be examined very carefully before we say what we propose to do," he said.
The brutal killing of two Indian soldiers by the Pakistani army has evoked a great deal of outrage across the board, with India warning that its response "may have to go beyond the procedures".
Indian officials said Pakistani soldiers, said to be from the Baloch regiment, sneaked into Jammu and Kashmir under the cover of a thick fog and killed two Indian soldiers and wounded a third.
India summoned Pakistan's high commissioner Wednesday after two of its soldiers were killed in a cross-border attack, the foreign ministry said.
"The Pakistan envoy has been summoned to meet with the Foreign Secretary (Ranjan Mathai)," ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said after India accused Pakistani troops of mutilating the body of one of the soldiers Tuesday.
