United Nations: Strongly condemning beheading of two Indian security personnel near the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, Balochistan leader Mehran Marri told the United Nations that the Pakistan Army has once again proven to be criminal-minded and barbaric.
Marri, Representative of Balochistan at the UNHRC and EU, termed Pakistan as a terrorist state.
The exiled Baloch leader said Pakistan has been committing such heinous act in Balochsitan for the last 70 years.
Marri's statement comes after the Pakistan Army on Monday killed an Indian soldier and a BSF trooper and mutilated their bodies near LoC. The Indian Army has vowed an "appropriate" response to the "despicable act".
Notably, Pakistan Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa recently visited some areas along the LoC and promised support to the Kashmiris.
The Army's Northern Command said the Pakistan Army in the morning fired rockets and mortar shells on two forward posts on the LoC, while Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) team set up an ambush to target the patrol party of the Indian soldiers.
"It was a pre-planned operation of the Pakistan Army. They had pushed in BAT teams over 250 meters deep inside Indian territory and set up ambushes for a long period to carry out the attack," a senior Army official said.
The dead were identified as Naik Subedar Paramjit Singh of 22 Sikh Regiment and Head Constable Prem Sagar of BSF's 200 Battalion. Constable Rajinder Singh of the BSF suffered injuries.
