New Delhi:  India has rejected as baseless allegations made in a letter to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, by Pakistan's Foreign Affairs Adviser Sartaj Aziz, over cross-border firing earlier this week.

In the letter, Pakistan had alleged that India killed two Pakistani Rangers in cold blood after calling them for a meeting on the International Border on December 31.

In a statement, Pakistan's Foreign Office said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has condemned the incident and Mr Aziz has lodged a strong protest through the letter, calling for an immediate investigation.

"On December 31, 2014, the Indian Border Security Force troops invited the personnel of the Punjab Rangers for a flag meeting, but greeted the unsuspecting soldiers with a volley of unprovoked fire, causing severe injuries to two soldiers. The unabated Indian firing denied timely medical attention to the wounded soldiers, who succumbed to their injuries," claimed a press release issued by the Pakistan Foreign Office.

The Indian Foreign Ministry has strongly denied the accusation, saying this had already been conveyed at a meeting in Islamabad between Pakistan's Foreign Secretary and India's High Commissioner.
