Pakistan has rejected the Indian claim that body of one of its three soldiers killed along the Line of Control (LoC) was mutilated, and termed it “false and baseless”.





“These reports are a fabrication and a blatant attempt to malign Pakistan,” the Foreign Office said in a statement on Tuesday.



Four civilians killed, 10 injured in Indian firing along LoC

“The Pakistan Army, with its professional approach, is not involved in any such unethical and non-professional activity and neither does it support any such action.”



Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said Pakistan was fully prepared and ready to respond to any misadventure across the LoC, Working Boundary or International Border.



“The fact is that India is constantly violating the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, targeting civilian and trying to divert the international attention from its atrocities in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir,” the statement added.

Tensions between Pakistan and India have been running high since July when India unleashed a brutal crackdown on Kashmiris protesting against the extrajudicial killing of a prominent freedom fighter, Burhan Wani.
