UNITED NATIONS : India has filed no complaint with the United Nations about its allegations that Pakistani troops on Monday killed two of its soldiers patrolling the Line-of-Control before mutilating their bodies, a UN spokesman said Tuesday.

"We checked with our colleagues with UNMOGIP (UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan). We have not received any alleged cease-fire violations reports from the Indian authorities related to the latest incident that we saw yesterday," Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in reply to a question about clashes between the two South Asian neighbours along the LoC .

UNMOGIP, deployed in January 1949, supervises the ceasefire between India and Pakistan in the State of Jammu and Kashmir. While Pakistan allows UN observers to monitor the LoC , India does not.

At the same time, the spokesman denied a correspondent's suggestion that the UN chief was not paying due attention to the deteriorating situation in Indian occupied Kashmir.

"The Secretary-General is paying attention to this issue," the spokesman insisted.

"We continue to reiterate the need for the parties to find a peaceful solution through engagement and dialogue." (APP)
