New Delhi [India], May 3 : Condemning the mutilation of two Indian soldiers by the Pakistan Army along Line of Control (LoC) in the Krishna Ghati sector of the Poonch district, Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Wednesday asserted that Pakistan was doing everything to create havoc in Kashmir.
"The Pakistan Army is known for such cowardly acts. We condemn the killing and mutilating the bodies of two Indian soldiers in the Border Action Team (BAT) attack.
Pakistan is doing everything in their power to create havoc in Kashmir by engineering such terror attacks," Singh told ANI.
Defending the Prime Minister Modi-led Government, Singh further stated that the Centre was serious over Pakistan's attack and would soon take steps to combat it.
"The Government is under pressure right now with all the allegations by the Opposition. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is serious over Pakistan's attack issue. He will soon be taking steps to combat terror issues," Singh said. The Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers in Krishna Ghati sector, where they had beheaded Lance Naik Hemraj in 2013.
The Indian Army confirmed the involvement of the BAT in the gruesome act beheading Indian soldier. "Pak Army carried out unprovoked rocket and mortar firing on two forward posts on the Line of Control in the Krishna Ghati sector.
Simultaneously, a BAT action was launched on a patrol operating in between the two posts. In a unsoldierly act by the Pak Army, the bodies of two of our soldiers in the patrol were mutilated. Such despicable act of Pakistan Army will be appropriately responded," read the Indian Army's statement.
