India's army accused Pakistani troops of killing two of its soldiers paroling the de facto border in the disputed Kashmir region on Monday before mutilating their bodies, and vowed to exact revenge.

The Indian army at the post retaliated heavily to the Pakistan's ceasefire violation and fired mortars at Pakistani posts, destroying three posts. It said in a statement that Indian allegations of mutilating Indian soldiers' bodies were also false. "The sacrifice will not go in vain", he said.

It was still not known if landmines had indeed been planted in the area.

"It was a pre-planed operation of Pakistan army".

"While appreciating the synergy between the security forces while fighting terrorism, the army chief impressed upon the forces to continue their positive engagement with the people in the Valley", the source said.

On March 9, army jawan Deepak Jagannath Ghadge was killed when Pakistani soldiers initiated indiscriminate and unprovoked firing along the LoC in Poonch.

If confirmed, the tariffs would then have to be approved by the US International Trade Commission. Ottawa has condemned the USA administration's move, calling it unfair and baseless.

The BAT is specifically employed for trans-LoC action. The patrol was dominating territory ahead of the fence along the LoC. "Two solider were killed and their bodies were mutilated". It triggered the Kargil war.

We are confident that the statement of the Army sums up what is to be done.

BAT refers to "Border Action Team". "They violated the ceasefire", the BSF officer said.

Pakistan, however, claimed that it neither committed any ceasefire violations nor mutilated Indian soldiers.

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Monday termed the mutilation of two Indian Army soldiers as intolerable and asked the Centre to act sternly against Pakistan. It also beheaded Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh.
