Pakistan Army denies its troops involved in LoC clash
Karachi: The Pakistan Army has denied Indian accusations that Pakistani soldiers were involved in a reported clash on the Indian side of the Line of Control (LoC).
An Indian army commander had alleged that Pakistani troops were involved in an ongoing gunbattle near the disputed border.
According to Dawn News, the Pakistan Army rejected the allegation as completely baseless.
The army said that it was a blatant lie and no such thing happened, a spokesman for the Inter-Services Public Relations, the military`s public relations wing, said in a text message.
Senior Indian army commander Gurmit Singh told reporters in Srinagar that the Indian soldiers had launched an operation against militants on September 24, which was still ongoing, the report said.
Singh claimed some 30 to 40 heavily-armed fighters had crossed the LoC in the Keran sector and were holed up for the past nine days in thick forests in the area, it added.
