Pakistan's BAT took advantage of the ceasefire violation and mutilated Indian soldiers' body, says BSF

As India expressed its outrage over the beheading of the two Indian soldiers along the Line of Control by Pakistan Border Action Team (BAT), Western Command BSF ADG KN Choubey said that the Pakistan Army took advantage of the ceasefire violation (from Pakistan's side) and mutilated the bodies of the Indian Army JCO and BSF head constable on Monday.

Choubey added that the army and the BSF, together, "will be brainstorming and we will come out with more revised SoP, so that such incidents can be minimised." Meanwhile, the slain soldiers were laid to rest on Tuesday. However, the family of Paramjeet Singh, the JCO, cried foul over his death and demanded to "see his body".

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday expressed grave concern over the tense situation prevailing in the Valley and instructed Jammu and Kashmir governor NN Vohra to work together with the state government in order to restore normalcy. Chairing the meet with Vohra, Rajnath also discussed the grievous attack by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir's Krishna Ghati sector, where the bodies of two Indian soldiers were mutilated.

Rajnath stressed on the importance of taking stern action against the ones disturbing the environment. While assuring the home minister of bringing things back to normal, the Jammu and Kashmir governor said he would keep updating the former about the developments taking place in the Valley.
