The contact was established between the Director Generals of Military Operations (DGMOs) of both the countries at 11.30 am on 2 May, following the talks between the local commanders of the two armies who spoke on the night of 1 may at Rawlakot-Poonch sector along the LoC.

"DGMO Indian Army conveyed that such dastardly and inhuman act is beyond any norm of civility and merits unequivocal condemnation and response", the statement said.

Pakistani troops are reported to have killed two Indian soldiers and mutilated their bodies in Kashmir, in what India's army has described as a "despicable act". He also cautioned his Indian counterpart that we are fully committed to maintain peace and tranquillity along the LoC, however, any misadventure shall be appropriately responded at a place and time of own choosing.

The deceased personnel were identified as Border Security Force (BSF) head constable Prem Sagar of the 200 Battalion and the Army's Naik Subedar Paramjit Singh of 22 Sikh Regiment.

"When the team was going for regular line maintenance, two FDL (forward defence locations) from Pakistan's side and two ambush, which they had set up, started firing simultaneously. They had pushed in BAT teams over 250 meters deep inside Indian territory and set up ambushes for a long period to carry out the attack", a senior army official said.

"The BSF works under the operational command of the army at the LOC".

Although initially it appeared that the attackers were a part of Pakistan's Border Action Team, early enquiry suggests that LeT likely had involvement in the act.

They first fired rockets and followed this up with firing from automatic weapons, near Kranti Post located in Poonch's Krishna Ghati Sector around 8.30 a.m.

"Pakistan Army did not commit any ceasefire violation on the Line of Control or a BAT [Border Action Team] action in the Buttal sector (as Krishna Ghatti sector is known across the LoC) as alleged by India", the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said. "I think, it has affected the prestige, respect and morale of the Indian Army". The government strongly condemns this act.

The Pakistani army denied responsibility for the cross-border attack, and said the mutilation claims were false.

As the Pakistani posts opened fire with mortars, the Pakistani commandos and terrorists opened fire with rocket-propelled grenades at the patrol. "Indian soldiers are not a dispensable commodity to be sacrificed at the altar of such uncivilised and savage assaults", he said in the statement.
