Pakistan Army on Friday claimed that none of its soldiers had died in firing at the border, contradicting the BSF’s assertion that it had killed 15 Pakistan Rangers personnel while retaliating to cross-border firing. The BSF on Friday said it had killed 15 Pakistani paramilitary personnel while retaliating to cross-border shelling and firing in which two Indian civilians were killed and two injured in Jammu region.

However, Pakistan’s Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) rejected BSF’s assertion. “Indian claims of killing any Pakistani soldier at the Working Boundary is absolutely baseless and untrue,” the ISPR said in a statement. “India’s claim is part of their propaganda campaign aimed to hide their losses at the Working Boundary and also divert world attention from the Kashmir issue,” it said.

Firing mortar shells and using automatic weapons, Pakistani troops targeted civilian areas and forward security posts along the International Border and Line of Control in Jammu, Kathua, Poonch and Rajouri districts of Jammu and Kashmir. In retaliatory firing, 15 Pakistani Rangers have been killed so far, the BSF had said.

In the meantime, for the third time this week, Pakistan has summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner and lodged a strong protest over alleged “unprovoked firing” by Indian forces along the Working Boundary and LoC. “(Pakistan) strongly condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations on October 27 by the Indian Forces at the Working Boundary in Shakargarh sector and on the LoC in Nikial sector” resulting in the death of six civilians, including two women, and injuries to 22 civilians, Pakistan Foreign Office said.

        AIADMK FOOKEDUP, when it put Jayalalithaa thumb impression instead of signature on party candidates’ nominations.lt;br/gt;This action nullifies the right to privacy of Jayalalithaa's medical status and records as it gives right to challenge the authenticity and voluntariness of her signature on the ground that it is made by a brain dead person..

            Not only that Indian forces did not kill a single Pak soldier as falsely claimed, they actually ended up killing a 7 year old girl, a 25 year old woman and a 50 year old man. It's routine habit for Indian forces to kill unarmed civilians and then making tall claims about killing terrorists. This is what they are doing in IOK. According to HRW, there are 1000's of unmarked graves in IOK. This is not stan saying, its HRW.

              stan clearly knows Congress (I) of India will support their claims in any international forum. So they don't have to try hard. lt;br/gt;1) Indian media have selective memory, Diggy told RSS was behind, 26/11, Pak used this to substantiate their story in UN.lt;br/gt;2) Chidu tried to fix RSS using NIA/CBI in samjautha express blast case, this was very helpful to Paklt;br/gt;3) Rahul told Safron terrorism is more dangerous than real terrorism. This too helped stan

                We have reached a stage where one tends to believe the stanis. Never in its history has the BSF killed fifteen stanis after 1971. They have no proof .Do they really think that the nation will believe their claims?

                  You think your jihadists are made of metal that they wont die in intense firing??? Hahah stani insutions have no credibility. Of course, the street gang mentality that p0rki hi jra fauj suffers from will deny just they denied after losing half country in 1971, routing in Kargil, Osama being in stan.. long history of denial and than sheepishly they will start admitting..imagine stan army admitting casualties what will be left of them???? they have lost all wars and losing birder skirmishes will be catastrophic to maintain hollow fear they have created. Your army can never win, they are only good at suppressing civilian regimes and terrorism.

And why was that fake account deleted as soon as it was uncovered that it was fake ?? Who deleted it and why bhajnath ??lt;br/gt;Where are the masked Kashmiri men shouting barbadi slogans in JNU ..for which you blamed Kanhaiya and co and sent them to jail..only to be bailed out by the court ??lt;br/gt;Where are they Mr.Bhajnath ?? lt;br/gt;Why your Home secretary was coaching other officers about what to say in the so called 'Missing" ishrat jahan files ??? And the report came out exactly as he tutored them. Why are you trying to mess with that case when Guj govt is not even a party in that case ??? Why did Vanzara call you the god that failed him in that letter from jail ? He said he did everything on your orders ??lt;br/gt;Why did you jail Bhavnagar Mun Commissioner Pradip Sharma ?

                        Feku is destroying all insutions which were so far untouched by criminal politicians.lt;br/gt;As far as his 'belief' in armed forces go,he sacked the DIG of Coast Guard Mr.Loshali for telling the truth about the 'Guj terror boat' incident.lt;br/gt;Google DIG Loshali Coast Guard and you will get the proof.lt;br/gt;So feku should stop hiding behind the army for his personal gain.lt;br/gt;Feku is destroying india bit by bit.lt;br/gt;Chaos and anarchy all around.

                                VK Singh paid 1.19 cr cash to ghulam mir (who was pdp min in abdullah govt) to help engineer dismissal of the govt.At aby the same time disturbances over koran desecration were fomented and people were killed.When caught,vk singh claimed every govt did it since independence.lt;br/gt;Not only this...he funded NGOs in Kashmir to file cases agst gen bikram singh to prevent him from becoming Chief.Then he filed affidavit abt his age to become chief of army.When it came time for retirement,he filed case agst army for mere 9 more months of service.He withdrew case when SC warned him if strict action.lt;br/gt;He then tried to raise bribery allegations to try and blackmail govt into relenting on the age issue and dragged ak antony into it.lt;br/gt;Then there was his ilegal TSD unit which was involved in all sorts of financial hanky panky.Claiming 8 crores of funds as part of covert ops in enemy territory without giving accounts or proof.lt;br/gt;Those who ignore history are condemned to repeat it.
