ISLAMABAD: Threatening Pakistan over the LoC unrest, Indian Air Chief NAK Browne said India would consider “other options” if Pakistan continued to violate the ceasefire agreement, Express News reported on Saturday.

Pakistan, on the other hand, summoned the Indian ambassador on Friday to protest against “unacceptable and unprovoked” attacks by the Indian army that killed two Pakistani soldiers in five days in Kashmir.

On Tuesday, India said two of its soldiers were killed by Pakistani troops and that one of them was beheaded in the disputed Himalayan region, which is claimed in full by both India and Pakistan but ruled in part by each.

Both sides claim responding to firing and neither is willing to admit which side fired first.

The United States has urged the nuclear-armed rivals to cool tensions along the heavily militarised LoC.

Kashmir, a Muslim-majority territory, has been the cause of two of their three wars since independence from Britain in 1947.

@ROHIT: We have history of making numbers go other i my self is not support of war because it may take Pakistan and India 50 years back. I personally think India will loose more than Pakistan If any sort of war happens.
