New Delhi: India on Wednesday summoned Pakistan high commissioner Abdul Basit to raise its protest at the mutilation of the bodies of two Indian security personnel killed earlier this week by the Pakistan military, after the latter opened fire along the Krishna Ghati sector in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district.

“Foreign Secretary (S. Jaishankar) conveyed India’s outrage at the killing and the barbaric act of mutilation of the bodies of the two Indian soldiers on 1 May, 2017 by Pakistan army personnel,” a statement from the Indian foreign ministry said.

The two Indian security personnel killed were an Indian army soldier and a Border Security Force (BSF) head constable.

“It was significant that the attack was preceded by covering fire from the Pakistani posts in Battal sector… Blood samples of Indian soldiers that have been collected and the trail of blood on Roza Nala clearly shows that the killers returned across the Line of Control (LoC, the de facto border dividing Kashmir into Indian and Pakistani administered halves),” the Indian statement said.
