Islamabad, Jan 9 (PTI)
Pakistani military on Wednesday rejected India's contention that its troops had attacked an Indian patrol and killed two soldiers, claiming that it had carried out ground verification and “found nothing of this sort happened”.
The Pakistani side conveyed this during a phone conversation between the Directors General of Military Operations (DGMOs) of the two sides.
A Pakistani military official, who did not want to be named, said Pakistan's DGMO Maj Gen Ashfaq Nadeem talked to his Indian counterpart Lt Gen Vinod Bhatia on a hotline and rejected the Indian Army's “allegations of cross-LoC firing by Pakistani troops and killing 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 is being alleged by India,” the military official said.
“It is mere propaganda by the Indian Army,” the official claimed.
The Pakistani military had yesterday also rejected the Indian Army's contention that Pakistani troops had killed two Indian soldiers after crossing the Line of Control, saying the accusation was aimed at diverting attention from another incident over the weekend.
The Indian Defence Ministry described the killing of the two soldiers by Pakistani forces as a “provocative action” and said New Delhi would take up the issue with Islamabad.
Pakistani soldiers crossed into Indian territory in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir and ambushed an Indian patrol killing two soldiers, one of whom was decapitated. Two more soldiers were injured
Please rememberAkbar | 09-Jan-2013Reply | Forward Hello. Comment from Pakistan: Can you please tell me why the killing of a P@k soldier (just a day before this incident) by 1ndian troops along the LoC does not deserve condemnation? Thanks!
Please make a pointGaurav | 09-Jan-2013Reply | Forward So you agree that the mutilation of two Indian Jawans was a retaliation of the death of a Pakistani soldier indeed!! Anyway, that Pakistani soldier died in the retaliatory firing which was actually provoked by the Pakistani side to infiltrate militants (so called blind jehadis). The pakistani army will always turn to CASH-MIR for getting extra bucks and buying villas in Europe, UK and USA & same is the case of bloody fat Inidan politicians and babus. Please do not bring religion in this matter brother. When all sensible options cease to put up a case then people usually turn to religion and emotions. It would be great to make India-Pakistan-Bangladesh a one single United nation once again; that should end this non-sense forever!! But, Before re-uniting India these social-ills should be destroyed first. All these medieval mind-sets should be sent to MARS!! To put it straight Akbar, India has never ever attacked Pakistan- that explains everything!
