Modi Warns Pak Of Retaliatory Action For Mutilating Bodies Of Indian Jawans
Jammu: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared that there would be suitable response to Pakistan for mutilating the bodies of Indian jawans. Pakistan has denied that it had mutilated the bodies.
In an unprovoked firing by Pakistan on Monday morning two Indian jawans were killed, said the army. Saying that the bodies of the jawans were mutilated, army has warned Pak of “appropriate response” for the despicable act. One army jawan and a constable of the Border Security Force who were a part of the joint patrolling team between two forward posts in the Krishna Ghati sector along the Line of Control were attacked by Pakistan, said Northern Command in a press release.
The incidents only add to the tensions between India and Pakistan, as India is miffed by a Pakistani Court awarding death sentence to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav. He was sentenced on the allegations that he was a spy which India denied. Pak also denied diplamantic access to Jadhav, who was a former naval officer more than fifteen times.
Meanwhile, the cease fire declared by India and Pakistan along the Line of Control,a defacto border, in 2003 has become futile over the last two years with frequent violations. On the top of it, Indian military bases are regularly being targeted by terrorists form across the border. Just last week there was an attack on Kupawara base.
In response to the attacks by terrorists, India in September last year conducted surgical strikes across the border targeting launch pads used by terrorists in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
