The Pakistan Army on Monday rubbished the allegations of mutilating Indian soldiers’ bodies, saying it would never disrespect a soldier’s body.

“Pakistan Army did not commit any ceasefire violation on the Line of Control or a BAT [Border Action Team] action in the Buttal sector (Indian Krishna Ghatti Sector) as alleged by India,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Monday.

“Indian blame of mutilating Indian soldiers’ bodies are also false.
Pakistan Army is a highly professional force and shall never disrespect a soldier even Indian,” it maintained in a statement.

Earlier today, Indian army claimed that Pakistani forces killed two Indian soldiers and mutilated their bodies along the Line of Control, Hindustan Times report.

The COAS appreciated effective border security arrangements which have enhanced control on cross border terrorist movement. He also hailed exceptionally high morale of the troops and their undaunted determination to eliminate terrorism.

Talking to the soldiers, Gen Qamar said the nation supports the Army due to the innumerable sacrifices made for the defence and security of the motherland.

Earlier, upon arrival, COAS was received by Commander Peshawar Corps Lieutenant General Nazir Ahmed Butt and IGFC K-P.
