Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], May 1 (ANI): Strongly condemning the mutilation of two Indian Army soldiers, Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Monday said that 'desperate' Pakistan would get a befitting reply for its cowardly act.
"This is a cowardly act by the Pakistan Army. They have to pay for this. It is the desperation of the militants. Pakistan is desperate as it has been isolated on the international level. Though the world community has not declared Pakistan a terrorist state, but now it has been established that it is a terrorist state. Just to make everyone realise its presence Pakistan is using terrorism as instrument of diplomacy," Singh told ANI.
Singh further said that the sacrifice of the soldiers would not go in vain.
Earlier, Pakistan mutilated bodies of two Indian soldiers who were killed earlier today in a ceasefire violation at Krishna Ghati sector here.
The Indian Army confirmed the news, releasing a statement on Twitter.
The Army, in a tweet said, "Pak Army carried out unprovoked Rocket and Mortar firing on two forward posts on the line of control in Krishna Ghati Sector. Simultaneously, a BAT action was launched on a patrol operating in between the two posts. In an 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." (ANI)
