<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Pakistan on Tuesday rejected as “false” and “baseless” the charges that the body of an Indian soldier, who was among the three killed by suspected Pakistani terrorists, was mutilated in a cross LoC-attack.Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Nafees Zakaria in a series of tweets said the reports about the mutilation were aimed at maligning Pakistan.”Pakistan strongly rejects the false & baseless Indian media reports regarding the alleged mutilation of an Indian solider on the LoC. These reports are a fabrication and a blatant attempt to malign Pakistan,” he said.Zakaria said as a professional force, Pakistan Army isn’t involved in any such “unethical & non-professional” activity. He said the Pakistan Army never supported any such action.However, he said, Pakistan is fully prepared and ready to respond to any misadventure across the LoC, Working Boundary or the International Border.Earlier today, the Indian Army said three soldiers were killed in an ambush on army patrol in Machhil sector of Kashmir. “Body of one soldier mutilated, retribution will be heavy for this cowardly act,” it said through a tweet. A Defence spokesman said heavy cross-Line of Control shelling was going on at four places in Machhil sector from 3.30 pm.”Around 1530 hour, heavy cross-LoC shelling has started from both sides at Dana Machhil, Ashni, Ringsar and Ringsar Payeen in Machhil sector of Kupwara district,” he said.This is the second such incident of mutilation of the body of an Indian soldier in the same sector since October 28. On that day, terrorists, aided by the cover fire by Pakistani Army, had crossed the Line of Control and killed an Indian army jawan and mutilated his body in the Macchil sector. One attacker was killed in that incident.
