Delhi: Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said on Wednesday that denial by Pakistan of its involvement in the mutilation of the bodies of two Indian soldiers carried "no credibility".  

"Pakistani military was involved in it," he told reporters here. 

Meanwhile, India said today it had "sufficient evidence" that the two Indian soldiers were mutilated by Pakistan Army regulars and Islamabad had been asked to take action against its army commanders for the act.

India considers the mutilation of Indian soldiers "a strong act of provocation",  Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said.

He also said that blood samples collected from the site in Krishna Ghati sector along the Line of Control (LoC) matches with the blood of the two Indian security personnel, as per PTI.

Asserting that the government has "sufficient evidence" that Pakistan army was involved in the mutilation of Indian soldiers, he said the "blood trail" shows that the perpetrators who entered the Indian side from Pakistan- occupied-Kashmir (PoK), returned from where they came from.

Responding to a series of questions on the issue, he said Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit, who was summoned by Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar, denied that Indian soldiers were mutilated.

Basit said he will convey the "content of the demarche" to his government, according to Baglay.
