3 Indian soldiers killed at LoC: Hindustan Times 

NEW DELHI: India said three of its soldiers were killed Tuesday along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Machhal sector in held Kashmir.

The body of one of the dead soldiers had been "mutilated", the army said in a tweet, threatening "retribution".

The Hindustan Times reported 'militants' were behind the attack.

There was no immediate comment from the Pakistan Army, which last week accused India of killing seven of its soldiers in cross-border fire in Kashmir.

"Pakistan strongly rejects the false and baseless media reports regarding the alleged mutilation of an Indian solider on the LoC.,” said Nafees Zakaria, spokesperson for the Foreign Office.

The FO statement further added that the “reports are a fabrication and a blatant attempt to malign Pakistan”..

“The Pakistan Army, with its professional approach, is not involved in any such unethical and non-professional activity and neither does it support any such action,” said the Foreign Office statement.

The fact is that India is constantly violating the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, targeting civilians and trying to divert international attention from its atrocities in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir, said Zakaria.
