India has summoned the Pak High Commissioner over yesterday’s attack in Kashmir, in which the Pak troops crossed the LoC and killed two soldiers; one was beheaded.
Both sides exchanged strong words today but warned against escalating the crisis. Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid told the Pak envoy Salman Bashir that the attack was "unacceptable." India has also asked Pakistan to probe the "barbaric mutilation" of the dead jawans, Lance Naiks Hemraj Singh and Sudhakar Singh.
Pakistan, while denying the allegations, has offered a UN inquiry, which is unlikely to be accepted by India. India might consider the suspension or cancellation of a new, more liberal visa introduced recently by the two countries improve mutual relations.
The Pak army has denied its troops’ responsibility for the attack. The Pak Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, has described India's allegations as "absolutely unacceptable" and reiterated the offer of an investigation by UN observers.
