The Indian Army has rejected the claims made by the Pakistan Army Chief General Raheel Shareef that his troops killed at least 11 Indian soldiers the day seven Pakistani jawans were killed in firing by Indian troops across the Line of Control (LoC).

New Delhi: The Indian Army has rejected the claims made by the Pakistan Army Chief General Raheel Shareef that his troops killed at least 11 Indian soldiers the day seven Pakistani jawans were killed in firing by Indian troops across the Line of Control (LoC).

The Northern Command in a tweet confirmed that no fatal casualties were recorded due to Pakistan firing on November 14, 15 or 16. The tweet also said that the claims made by the Pakistan Army Chief of killing Indian soldiers on November 14 are false.

“The day seven of our soldiers were martyred on the border, we killed at least 11 Indian soldiers,” the Pakistan Army Chief General had claimed.

He asserted that Pakistan has killed “40-44 Indian troops” in the current clashes but the Indian Army was refusing to accept and own its casualties.

“The Indian army should man up and accept their losses,” he advised.

Pakistan had claimed that seven of its soldiers were killed at the LoC in an alleged ceasefire violation by Indian troops on November 13.

Earlier on Monday, Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry summoned the Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale and condemned the “unprovoked ceasefire” violation by the Indian forces on the Line of Control (LoC), resulting in the death of 7 Pakistani soldiers in Bhimber area.
