Act against 'coward' Pak, says Dalbir Kaur

Jalandhar (Punjab) [India], May 2 (ANI): Dalbir Kaur, the sister of Sarabjit Singh, who died in a Pakistan jail in 2013, on Tuesday asked the Centre to act firmly against a 'Coward' Islamabad for mutilating the bodies of two Indian soldiers.

"Pakistan is coward and a betrayer. It stabs in the back. This attack indicates its cowardice. I felt deeply grieved after hearing this news. It made me infuriated," she said.

"Mere condemning and saying that the sacrifice of the soldiers will not go in vain will not work. We should give a befitting reply to them and not act softly. I want the government to take serious steps instead of merely condemning it," she added.

On Monday, Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers in Krishna Ghati sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district along the Line of Control.

The Indian Army confirmed the involvement of the BAT in the gruesome act.

"Pak Army carried out unprovoked rocket and mortar firing on two forward posts on the Line of Control in the Krishna Ghati sector. Simultaneously, a BAT action was launched on a patrol operating in between the two posts. In a unsoldierly act by the Pak Army, the bodies of two of our soldiers in the patrol were mutilated. Such despicable act of Pakistan Army will be appropriately responded," read the Indian Army's statement.

The Pakistan Army, however, denied India's charge and described itself as a highly professional force that never disrespects any soldier.

"Pakistan Army did not commit any ceasefire violation on LOC or a BAT action in Buttal sector (Indian Krishna Ghati Sector) as alleged by India. Indian blame of mutilating Indian soldiers' bodies is also false," the Inter Services Public Relation (ISPR) said in a satement.(ANI)
