India sends back Pakistani students to Lahore amid dispute over mutilation of Indian soldiers

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Gopal Baglay said an NGO had invited a group of 47 Pakistan school children accompanied by their teachers as part of a student exchange program.

Taking a tough stand against Pakistan in the wake of beheading of two Indian soldiers from across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, India has sent back a delegation of students from Pakistan.

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Gopal Baglay said an NGO had invited a group of 47 Pakistan school children accompanied by their teachers as part of a student exchange program.

India has advised the NGO that this is not the right time for such exchange programs.

The delegation was coming to India on the same day when the Indian army soldiers were killed and their bodies mutilated .

In a ceasefire violation, the Pakistan Army had on May 1 opened rocket and mortar firing on two forward posts along the Line of Control. Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) attacked an Indian joint patrol team and mutilated its two soldiers.

Pakistan has denied violating any ceasefire or killing Indian soldiers.
