Pakistan on Tuesday summoned India’s acting deputy High Commissioner over the killing of three soldiers in “unprovoked” firing on Monday evening.
The firing by Indian forces in Rakhchikri sector of Poonch district had “provided a cover for the planting of IEDs [improvised explosive devices] by non-state actors”, which resulted in the killing of three soldiers, Foreign Office (FO) said in a statement.
The FO “categorically rejected” claims by Indian media that Indian forces had crossed the LoC to attack Pakistani troops.
“The false claims by India about the alleged cross-LoC adventures are a figment of their imagination and counter-productive for peace and tranquility on the LoC,” the FO statement said.
