New Delhi: Following the Army cautioning Islamabad that it would face consequences for the killing and mutilation of two soldier, Pakistan's military on Tuesday warned India that they would respond to any "misadventure".
The warning was issued during a hotline contact between the Director Generals of Military Operations (DGMOs) of Pakistan and India in an attempt to defuse tensions.
"Any misadventure shall be appropriately responded at a place and time of own choosing," a statement issued by the Army said, as reported by PTI.
The Pakistan army also asked India to provide "actionable evidence" to substantiate its charge claim that a Pakistani special forces team sneaked across the LoC, beheaded two Indian security personnel and mutilated their bodies.
The incident evoked a sharp reaction from India with Defence Minister Arun Jaitley saying such attacks do not even take place during war and that the whole country has full faith in the armed forces.
"Bodies of soldiers being mutilated is an extreme form of barbaric act. Government of India strongly condemns this act. The whole country has full faith in our armed forces which will react appropriately to the act," Jaitley had said.
India's Vice Chief of Army Staff Sarath Chand said that Pakistan will have to face the consequences of mutilating bodies of two Indian soldiers and the army will respond to the dastardly act at a time and place of its choice.
