RAWALPINDI: Routine weekly Hotline Contact was established between Pakistan and Indian DGs MO today (Tuesday) amid tension between the two countries in Kashmir region.
“DG MO Pakistan Army rejected baseless and unfounded Indian allegations of mutilation of Indian Army Soldier’s bodies by Pakistan Army. He reiterated that neither Cease Fire Violations (CFV) occurred in the alleged sector nor crossing of LoC by own troops has taken place,” ISPR said in a statement.
“DGMO 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,” the statement said.
“DGMO 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,” 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 commanders level hotline contact was established at Rawlakot- Poonch sector on Line of Control (LoC) between Pakistan and Indian Army authorities.
