The Army on Monday said Pakistan had a “direct role” in the mutilation of a soldier’s body along the Line of Control in Machhil sector of Kupwara district on November 22. “Refer to Machhil operation of November 22, where body of one soldier was mutilated, search leads to recoveries that indicate Pakistan’s complicity,” an army officer at the Udhampur-based Northern Command said in a statement.

Watch what else is making news:

Three soldiers were killed and the body of one of them was mutilated when infiltrators had ambushed an army patrol in the Machhil sector on November 22. The eatables and other items recovered from the area show the marking of “Pakistan Defense Force”, “Pakistan standard” and the night vision that bears the seal of “Government Property”, which is made by the US and used by the Pakistan army, the officer said.

“Three soldiers were killed in action on the LoC in Machhil. Body of one soldier mutilated, retribution will be heavy for this cowardly act,” Army had said after the killing. It was second incident of mutilation of soldier’s body in less than a month, triggering outrage.

On October 28, aided by the cover fire by Pakistani Army, terrorists had crossed the LoC and killed an army jawan and mutilated his body in Machhil sector. One attacker was killed in that incident. In June 2008, a soldier of the 2/8 Gorkha Rifles lost his way and was captured by a Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) in Kel sector. His body was found beheaded few days later.

      How did the body get into the hands of stan? Impossible right? Unless the Indian army brigadier himself mutilated him and blame it on stan for invoking FAKE PATRIOTISM AMONG BARB-ARYANS. After all the brigadier is a BARB-ARYANand the soldier is a SHUDRA!

                  No, during educational life, we just read our academic books and those were not written by RSS.Further,as we Indians are not brainwashed by educations systems (books,teachers) so we have zeal to read and learn and explore (that includes reading other historical books too).

                    I think every dead stani should be buried with a dead pig, so that it reminds them that their actions will have retributions not just talk. The British knew that the Afghans would mutilate the bodies of dead British, till the British also started doing the same, this kind of stopped this.

                        Use your time in some better activity rather then writing silly comment and uprating by own vote. Use your smartness for better purpose.

                              IE is blocking my comments. May be they want to let the stani bloggers have priority in their forums.

                                  Problem that India needs to internationaise is that the Pak. Army has religious fundamentalists of the same kind as ISIS. India needs to brief Ambadors from all the major countries.

                                          Barhamin treating other hindu shudar and other lower casts like a dirt! Exporting cow meat is profitable then letting Christians, some Hindus and muslims to have them on their dinning table. United Nation Resolutions ped on Kashmir so in worlds eyes this is a disputed area. Intervening other sovereign countries is the bad habit of India but stan is Pak from them due to being a nuclear power. Try invading stan so you will have only few Sikhs to fight for you because hindus are coward nation.

                                            Maya your language only shows your poor upbringings! It is extremely important for parents to have education before deciding to have children so none of them grown up ruining good neighbourhood.
