Pakistan Monday strongly denied Indian claims that its forces had committed an atrocity along the border with disputed Jammu and Kashmir.
"Pakistan’s Army did not commit any cease-fire violation on the line of control or an action in the Buttal sector as alleged by India," said an army statement.
India’s accusations that Pakistani troops mutilated its soldiers' bodies are also false, the statement added.
The army is a highly professional force and shall never disrespect a soldier, even an Indian one, it added.
New Delhi accused a so-called Border Action Team of committing the mutilation, but Pakistan’s army has no such teams, according to the statement.
India claimed earlier Monday that two of its soldiers were killed in disputed Jammu and Kashmir along Pakistan’s border and their bodies were mutilated.
"Such a despicable act of the Pakistan Army will be appropriately responded to," the Indian army said in a statement.
The armies of the two countries have regularly accused each other of mutilating the bodies of each other’s soldiers after killing them.
