New Delhi :

Union Defence minister Arun Jaitley dismissed Pakistan’s denial of its involvement in beheading of two Indian soldiers in the Krishna Ghati of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir, saying that it had ‘no credibility’.

The minister blamed the neighbour for its active participation in the barbaric act, alleging that the cover fire provided by the Pakistani Army paved way for its troops to execute the misdeed.

While talking to media, the defence minister said it cannot be possible without the indulgence of Pakistani Army to sneak their force in Indian territory.
