During a call to his Pakistani counterpart, Army’s Director-General of military operations (DGMO) Lieutenant General A K Bhatt warned of retaliation over the killing and beheading of the two soldiers in the Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir.
BSF head constable Prem Sagar and Indian Army Jawan Paramjit Singh were martyred in ceasefire violation when Pakistan army crossed the LoC and beheaded them.
Vice Chief of Army Staff Sarath Chand also asserted that Pakistan will face consequences for mutilating bodies of two Indian soldiers.
“I do not want to say what we will do. Instead of speaking, we will focus on our action at a time and place of our choosing,” he said.
“The DGMO of the Indian Army conveyed that such a dastardly and inhuman act is beyond any norms of civility and merits unequivocal condemnation and response,” stated a release from the defence ministry.
Defence Minister Arun Jaitley while warning Pakistan said,“The country has full confidence and faith in our armed forces, which will react appropriately to this inhuman act. The sacrifice of these soldiers will not go in vain.”
However, Pakistan has denied its involvement in the attack.
