Rawalpindi: While rejecting Indian allegations regarding the mutilation of Indian army soldierâ€™s body, Director General of Military Operations Pakistan (DGMO) has said that baseless and unfounded allegation leveled by India was a ploy to divert the attention of world from situation within the valley.
â€œDGMO Pakistan Army highlighted that Pakistan Army is a professional military outfit and upholds the highest standards of conduct. Allegations of mutilation are an Indian attempt to divert the attention of world from situation within the valley,â€ the ISPR statement said adding that DG MO Pakistan Army had in categorical terms rejected baseless and unfounded Indian allegations of mutilation of Indian Army Soldierâ€™s bodies by Pakistan Army.
â€œHe reiterated that neither Cease Fire Violations (CFV) occurred in the alleged sector nor crossing of LoC by own troops has taken place,â€ ISPR said in a statement.
Pertinently, routine weekly Hotline Contact was established between Pakistan and Indian DGs MO today (Tuesday) amid tension between the two countries in Kashmir region.
â€œDGMO Pakistan Army asked for actionable evidence and urged that Indian Army should look inwards to probe the incidence and also cautioned his Indian counterpart that we are fully committed to maintain peace and tranquility along the LoC, however, any misadventure shall be appropriately responded at a place and time of own choosing,â€ Pakistan Army warned.
DGMO Pakistan Amy also highlighted the issue of continuously targeting innocent civilians on LoC by Indian troops and apprised him that continuity of such action would invite appropriate response.
Last night, a local commanderâ€™s level hotline contact was established at Rawlakot- Poonch sector on Line of Control (LoC) between Pakistan and Indian Army authorities.
ISPR said the Pakistani commander expressed hope that prudence would be exercised across the divide and no steps taken that may affect peace along the LoC and lead to vitiating of the environment.
A routine director generalâ€™s military operations (DGMO) level hotline is also likely today, the ISPR said.
On Monday, the Indian army had alleged that Pakistani forces fired rockets and mortar bombs at two Indian posts across the LoC and mutilated the bodies of two of her soldiers in the patrol. However, the allegation was strongly refuted by the Pakistan army.
â€œPakistan army did not commit any ceasefire violation on the LoC or a Border Action Team (BAT) action in Battal sector (Indian Krishna Ghatti Sector) as alleged by India,â€ the ISPR had said.
The ISPR had made it clear that not only the blame of mutilating the bodies of Indian soldiers was false but it was also in sharp disregard to the values maintained by Pakistan army.
