In the hotline conversation between the Director Generals of Military Operations of both sides, India conveyed its concern about the presence of Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) training camps "in close vicinity" of LoC.

Indian Army had vowed an "appropriate" response to the "despicable act", which took place a day after Pakistan Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa visited some areas along the LoC.

"Pakistan rejected India's allegations of ceasefire violation and mutilation of bodies of Indian soldiers", the army statement said.

The BAT raid on Monday, during which bodies of Naib Subedar Paramjit Singh (22 Sikh Regiment) and head constable Prem Sagar (200 BSF Battalion) were left mutilated, is the third such macabre episode since the "surgical strikes" against terror launchpads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir on September 29. They will have to take the responsibility and face the consequences. "Indian blame of mutilating Indian soldiers' bodies are also false". The BSF destroyed two Pakistani posts across the LoC, located in Pimple and Kirpan.

It said was "a highly professional force and shall never disrespect a soldier even Indian".

"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". Constable Rajinder Singh of the BSF suffered injuries in the attack.

Last night, a local commanders level hotline contact was established at Rawlakot- Poonch sector on Line of Control (LoC) between Pakistan and Indian Army authorities.

Giving details about Monday's incident in Krishna Ghati sector, he said: "The firing came from two Pakistani FDLs (Forward Defence Locations) and simultaneously from two ambushes while a well-coordinated BAT action was carried out".

"Allegations of mutilation are an Indian attempt to divert the attention of the world from the situation within the [India-held Kashmir] valley", the Pak DGMO told his Indian counterpart, according to the ISPR. "The sacrifice of these two soldiers will not go in vain", Jaitley said. The government strongly condemns this act.

The Army added that the soldiers who were killed and injured were part of a team on patrol between two forward posts in Poonch's Krishna Ghati sector.

As the Pakistani posts opened fire with mortars, the Pakistani commandos and terrorists opened fire with rocket-propelled grenades at the patrol.
