Will respond to Pak at time and place of our choosing: Army

A hotline contact was made between local commanders of Pakistan and Indian armies at Rawalakot-Poonch sector along the Line of Control (LoC) last night following Indian allegations that Pakistani troops had killed and mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers.

The Indian Army vowed that the "despicable act" by Pakistani soldiers would be "appropriately responded [to]". Army vice-chief Lt-General Sarath Chand said the Pakistan Army would have to face the consequences for mutilating the bodies of Naib Subedar Paramjit Singh and BSF head constable Prem Sagar during the BAT operation.

"The Pakistani army posts attacked two FDL posts with rockets and mortar bombs at 0830 hours and engaged them. If the government can not teach Pakistan a lesson, then they should allow me to take revenge of my husband's killing", she said. "Indian blame of mutilating Indian soldiers' bodies are also false". The Army Chief was briefed by the Corps Commander Lt Gen J S Sandhu on the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

In an another barbaric attack by the Pakistani security forces, a special Pakistani army team crossed into 250 meters across the LoC into Poonch sector and beheaded two Indian security personnel.

Although initially it appeared that the attackers were a part of Pakistan's Border Action Team, early enquiry suggests that LeT likely had involvement in the act.

"It (the incident) has affected the morale of Indian people, Indian Army and also the continuous attacks on military installations has put a question mark about the security structure on the border".

United States decries attack in Afghanistan
He acknowledged that 2017 was going to be another tough year for Afghan security forces and the global troops stationed there. He arrived at a low point for Afghan Security Forces in the three years since President Obama ended the USA combat mission.

Apart from armed militant groups, the roughly 500,000 Indian soldiers in Kashmir are regularly involved in clashes with civilians. "But yes, everybody knows that this has taken place immediately after the visit of the Pakistan Army Chief to the frontal area", said BSF Additional Director General (ADG) Western Command K.N. Choubey.

"Mere condemning and saying that the sacrifice of the soldiers will not go in vain will not work".

He said as the posts were engaged, the patrol party men ran here and there.

It is the same Krishna Ghati sector where the Pakistani BAT had beheaded Lance Naik Hemraj and badly severed the head of Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh of 13 Rajputana Rifles, on January 8, 2013.

India has warned of an unambiguous response to Pakistan, after the mutilation of two of its solider along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Krishna Ghati sector in Pooch on 1 May.
