Two days later, the Army had offered Pakistan to take back the bodies for last rites and asked them to come with a white flag. Top military sources had said there were five BAT attempts on Indian military posts on the LoC in August.
Sources said Pakistan was trying to push Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists and those from other outfits.
