India has categorically rejected Pakistan’s claims that it has killed five Indian soldiers in Tatta Pani-Krishna Ghati sector.
According to senior Army officers Pakistan’s claims are “completely false” and none of the Indian Army man was Killed during the unprovoked Pakistani attack.
“There has been no casualty on our side. Two civilians, including a woman, however, sustained injuries in the ceasefire violation by Pakistan, which began at 11 pm on Friday and continued till Saturday afternoon. We strongly reacted to it,” said an officer.
Pakistan’s latest claim on Saturday came in the backdrop of widespread reports, though unverified, that five of its soldiers were killed and six injured in “retaliatory fire assaults” by the Indian Army across the Poonch and Naushera sectors along the LoC last Thursday, as was then reported by TOI.
Meanwhile, Army chief General Bipin Rawat visited some battalions deployed along the LoC in North Kashmir on Saturday. “During his visit on Saturday, Gen Rawat was briefed on all aspects of operational and logistical preparedness. He was appreciative of the measures put in place to meet any challenge,” said an officer.
