Pak military sure of casualties on Indian side: Asim Bajwa

Islamabad [Pakistan], Oct. 1 : The Pakistan Army on Saturday said that it is certain it caused casualties on the Indian side of the border during the cross-border firing by Indian troops which killed two Pakistani soldiers.

Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lt. Gen. Asim Bajwa said that India is "hiding its losses". Bajwa said the military responded "befittingly" to Indian firing across the Line of Control (LoC), however, adding that a "war is not in anybody's interest", reports the Dawn.

Referring to reports of an Indian soldier having entered into Pakistani territory "inadvertently", Bajwa said the military is "looking into the matter".

While the Indian side maintained its soldier "inadvertently crossed into Pakistan and should be returned as per existing mechanisms", Pakistan's Ambassador to the United Nations Dr Maleeha Lodhi has said he was captured "while trying to enter into Pakistani territory".
