Pakistan on Tuesday rejected as ‘false’ and ‘baseless’ the charges that the body of an Indian soldier, who was among the three killed by suspected Pakistani terrorists, was mutilated in a cross LoC-attack.
Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Nafees Zakaria in a series of tweets said the reports about the mutilation were aimed at maligning Palistan.
“Pakistan strongly rejects the false & baseless Indian media reports regarding the alleged mutilation of an Indian solider on the LoC. These reports are a fabrication and a blatant attempt to malign Pakistan,” he said.
Zakaria said as a professional force, Pakistan Army isn't involved in any such ‘unethical & non-professional’ activity.
He said the Pakistan Army never supported any such action. However, he said, Pakistan is fully prepared and ready to respond to any misadventure across the LoC, Working Boundary or the International Border.
Earlier today, the Indian Army said three soldiers were killed in an ambush on army patrol in Machhil sector of Kashmir. “Body of one soldier mutilated, retribution will be heavy for this cowardly act," it said through a tweet.
