Army rejected the reports of killing of 8 of its personnel in sections of Pakistan media


NEW DELHI: The armed force has denied reports by an area of Pakistani media that eight Indian soldiers passed on and one was caught amid striking back to what Pakistan has called "cross-fringe terminating from India".

Won’t tolerate lax policing, says Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung

The solders that Pakistani reported as caught had a place with Rashtriya Rifles and did not remove a portion of the surgical strikes. He had inadvertently crossed the Line of Control from the army post where he was on duty, the Army headquarters has said.

"Such unintentional crossing by Army and civilians are not irregular on either side. They are returned through existing mechanisms " an statement from the Army head quarters read.

"As regards the report of killing of eight Indian Army work force reported in segments of Pakistan media, the report is totally false and baseless " it further included.

Sources said the Director General of Military Operation General Ranbir Singh addressed his Pakistani partner after the fighter traversed accidentally and requested that he be sent back.

Dawn had reported that the Pakistani military has claimed that it has killed eight Indian soldiers and captured one, Chandu Babulal Chohan, while retaliating to India's firing at the first line of defence at the Line of Control at Tatta Pani.

The Pakistani army has accused India of "fabrication of truth" after India revealed that it has carried out  surgical strikes on Wednesday night at seven places across the Line of Control.
