Pakistan's ambassador to India Abdul Basit on Tuesday evaded media's question on the killing of two soldiers and mutilation of their bodies.

ADG BSF Nayan Choubey said that the BAT team had taken advantage of firing by Pakistani Army, and mutilated the bodies of the jawans.  

The army had issued a statement saying that the bodies of an army soldier and a BSF head constable were mutilated but a senior army officer told PTI that they were beheaded.     

The BAT team had set up an ambush to target the patrol party of the Indian soldiers while the Pakistan Army engaged two Indian forward defence locations (FDL) with rockets and mortar bombs, the officials had said.

"It was a pre-planned operation of the Pakistan Army.They had pushed in BAT teams over 250 meters deep insideIndian territory and set up ambushes for a long period to carryout the attack," a senior army official had said.

 "The Pakistani army posts attacked two FDL posts with rockets and mortar bombs at 0830 hours and engaged them,"  the official had said. "Their target was a 7 to 8-member patrol party, which hadcome out of the post," the official had said. He said as the posts were engaged, the patrol party menran here and there.

 "Two members of the patrol party, who were left behind, were attacked by the BAT team and killed. Their bodies were badly mutilated," the official had said.

Here is Pakistan's fresh statement-

ISPRA local commanders level hotline contact was established at Rawlakot- Poonch sector on LoC last night between Pakistan and Indian Army authorities. Indian counterpart was told that there has been no CFV from Pakistan side nor mutilation of Indian soldiers bodies.

Indian authorities were told that there is unnecessary media hype following the allegations. Pakistan remains fully committed to maint peace and tranquillity along the LOC and expect same from other side and hope prudence is exercised and no steps are taken that may lead to vitiating of environment and affect peace along LOC.

A Routine DGMO level hotline is also likely on Tuesday.
