Mutilation of Indian soldiers by Pakistan Arun Jaitley briefs PM Narendra Modi

In November a year ago, three soldiers were killed, and one of them was beheaded, in Jammu and Kashmir on the Line of Control - in action that the army said bore the "signature" of the Pakistan Army's Border Action Team.

The Indian Army confirmed the involvement of the BAT in the gruesome act beheading Indian soldier. Such attacks do not take place during war, ” he said.

Pakistan has dismissed New Delhi's accusations that it mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers killed in firing along the Line of Control in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

"This kind of act is very common by Pakistan; they don't feel sad or have a heart of not doing it".

R K Singh, a former Union home secretary, said, "Pakistan understands only one language and therefore we need to kill more Pakistani soldiers and give them the same treatment".

'The Pakistani commandos were lying in wait ahead of the AIOS (Anti-Infiltration Obstacle System).

"The DGMO highlighted that the Pakistan Army is a professional military outfit and upholds the highest standards of conduct".

"The [Indian] DGMO has conveyed concern about the presence of Border Action Teams (BAT) training camps in the close vicinity of LoC in Pakistan Administered Kashmir".

Although initially it appeared that the attackers were a part of Pakistan's Border Action Team, early enquiry suggests that LeT likely had involvement in the act.

"Pakistani Army carried out unprovoked rocket and mortar firing on two forward posts on the Line of Control in Krishna Ghati Sector (in Poonch district) this morning", a defence ministry spokesman said. Indian blame of mutilating Indian soldiers' bodies are also false. "Such unprovoked acts of excessive violence can not be tolerated or allowed to go unpunished". The government strongly condemns this act. Constable Rajinder Singh of the BSF battalion had suffered injuries in the attack.

Later, DG Military Operations Pakistan Army also told his Indian counterpart that neither ceasefire violations occurred in the Sector nor crossing of LoC by Pakistanis troops has taken place.

Detailing yesterday's killings, BSF Additional Director General (ADG) Western Command KN Choubey said that Army and BSF's joint team was attacked when they were going for regular line maintenance in Krishna Ghati sector for boundary protection.

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