Federal Defence Minister and Minister of Water and Power, Khawaja Asif on Monday said that Indian allegations of Pakistani incursion on the Line of Control (LoC) are baseless. It is a deplorable attempt to ignite tensions for internal political motives.

In a social media post, he wrote, “Indian allegations of Pakistani incursion on LOC are baseless. It is a deplorable attempt to ignite tensions for internal political motives.”

He further said that Indian allegations attempt to demonise Pakistan Army and take attention away from Indian atrocities in Kashmir. “These baseless allegations are aimed at vitiating the environment, deflecting attention from troubles in Kashmir & demonising Pakistan Army,” he wrote.

He said that he expects Indian government to exercise caution and not let the situation go out of control. “We remain fully committed to peace on LOC. We expect prudence will b exercised on Indian side to avoid situation spiralling out of control,” he shared.

He added, "Pakistan Army upholds highest standards of professional conduct..violation of LOC and question of mutilation of bodies does not arise at all."

Earlier, Pakistan Army had also rejected the accusations of the Indian Army.

“Pakistan Army is a highly professional force and shall never disrespect a soldier even Indian”, the statement further said.

Indian Army had alleged that two members of an Indian army patrol were killed on LoC and then their bodies were mutilated.
