Pakistan assisted escape of Indian soldiers' attackers, alleges Arun Jaitley

Jawans carry the coffin of the head constable killed in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Jammu on Tuesday

Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar conveyed in a statement that GoI demands Pak takes an immediate action against its soldiers and commanders responsible for the heinous act. "The blood samples of the Indian soldiers that have been collected and the trail of blood on Roza Nala clearly shows that the killers returned across the Line of Control".

Nearly two dozen villages in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir have been cordoned off, as the Indian Army along with other security forces have launched a massive anti-terror operation today.

The latest escalation in tensions began after an attack on an Indian army base last September, which India blamed on Pakistani militants and retaliated with "surgical strikes" across the Line of Control.

As per the ISPR version of events, the Pakistan army DGMO claimed that the allegations of mutilation were "an Indian attempt to divert the attention of world from situation in the Valley".

"We never said that army killed 10 terrorists". While saying that Army does not reveal plans before executing them, Army chief said "We do not talk about future plans beforehand".

This time, he had visited the area near Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir from where the mutilated bodies of Border Security Force constable Prem Sagar and armyman Paramjit Singh were recovered on Monday morning.

The incident, marking yet another low in the fractured India-Pakistan relationship, comes about six months after an Indian Army soldier was killed and his body mutilated close to the LoC in the Machil sector on October 28 past year.

While Pakistan Army has denied any involvement in the killing, India promised action.

Earlier this week, the Indian army had alleged that Pakistani forces fired rockets and mortar bombs at two Indian posts across the LoC and mutilated the bodies of two soldiers on patrol.

A top Pakistani official on Tuesday described the Jammu and Kashmir dispute as "a burning issue requiring urgent worldwide attention".

India yesterday warned Pakistan of an "unequivocal" response to the killing and mutilation of two soldiers yesterday along the Line of Control in Kashmir. Such despicable act of Pakistan Army will be appropriately responded'. Responding to the Opposition's comments questioning the political will of the government to take military action against Pakistan, Naidu said: "There is will, there is kill".

But the confusion over the evidence could return to haunt India as it tries to pin the blame on Pakistan's army, some officials conceded.

The BAT had laid an ambush to trap an Indian patrol team and they were also provided covering fire from the Pakistani posts on the other side of the border.
