Highlights

  1. 2 soldiers killed, mutilated by Pakistan yesterday along Line of Control
  2. Want revenge, says Prem Sagar's family, he was with BSF
  3. Family of army's Paramjit Singh asks to see body before cremation
In a small village in Uttar Pradesh, a young woman is clear on how India must avenge two soldiers who were killed and then beheaded yesterday by Pakistan.

"I want 50 heads for his sacrifice" she says, referring to her father, Prem Sagar, who was a constable with the Border Security Force.  

Yesterday, Pakistani troops crossed into Indian territory in Kashmir and killed him and then mutilated his body. They inflicted similar atrocities on an army jawan, Paramjit Singh. Indian army sources said that the Pakistanis crossed the Line of Control or defacto border in Kashmir but did not breach the wire fence that India uses to mark its military boundary.

Upset relatives of Paramjit Singh said they wouldn't cremate him till they were allowed to see his body

The Indian soldiers were killed while patrolling between two posts along the Line of Control in the Poonch sector that were attacked with mortar bombs and heavy fire by Pakistan at 8:30 am yesterday.  India says using that as cover, its men were targeted.

Pakistan's army has denied those allegations, stating "Pakistan Army is a highly professional force and shall never disrespect a soldier even Indian."

But the government and the army have both pledged appropriate response for the barbaric act.

Paramjit Singh's body was moved today to his village in Tarn Taran in Punjab, where upset relatives said they would not cremate him till they were allowed to see his body. "Whose body is this? It is all behind (concealed in) this box" they said, referring to the coffin with the national flag draped around it as a tribute to the senior constable's bravery. "We are not being shown the body? Why?" they asked.

This afternoon, the army's Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) spoke to his Pakistani counterpart and warned "that such dastardly and inhuman act is beyond any norm of civility and merits unequivocal condemnation & response."
