India summons Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit


NEW DELHI: India today summoned Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit to register protest over alleged mutilation of two jawans in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district on Monday.

Basit arrived at the Foreign Ministry headquarters on Raisina Hill in Delhi around noon today and refused to entertain questions from the media.

Islamabad has denied the allegations and sought “actionable evidence” from New Delhi to back its claim that two soldiers were beheaded on the Indian side of the Line of Control.

India’s Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen A K Bhatt spoke to his Pakistani counterpart on Tuesday to express his grave concern over the unsoldierly act.

“The DGMO of the Indian Army conveyed that such a dastardly and inhuman act is beyond any norms of civility and merits unequivocal condemnation and response,” the Indian Army said in a statement.
