New Delhi: Defence Minister A K Antony on Saturday said his ministry will fully cooperate with Jammu and Kashmir police probe into the alleged fake encounter in Kashmir involving an army jawan and promised that anybody found "guilty will be punished".

He said the army is also inquiring into the allegations that three youth were lured to the Line of Control and killed in a fake encounter.

"The Jammu and Kashmir government has already ordered an inquiry. We will fully cooperate and there is no question of cover up. Whoever is guilty will be punished... There is no question of cover up and nobody will be spared," he said.
