Poonch attack: India, Pakistan exchange warnings on hotline

Srinagar: India warned Pakistan on Tuesday of an “unequivocal” response to the killing and mutilation of two soldiers on Monday along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, NDTV reported.

Pakistan, which has denied the act, said in response on Tuesday that India “should look inwards” to determine how the soldiers were killed, sought “actionable evidence” of India’s claims, and warned “any misadventure shall be appropriately responded at a place and time of own choosing”, the report added.

The recriminations were exchanged between top commanders of India and Pakistan – the Director General of Military Operations, Lieutenant General AK Bhatt, spoke on a hotline to his counterpart across the border hours after Delhi warned that the army will exact revenge for the atrocities committed on Prem Sagar and Naib Subedar Paramjit Singh, the report said, adding both men were part of a team patrolling the LoC or de facto border in the Poonch sector last morning when two posts were assaulted with rockets and mortar bombs.
