"No fatal casualties due to Pak firing on 14, 15 or 16 Nov. Pak Army Chief claim of killing Indian soldiers on 14 Nov false," Northern Command of Indian Army said in a tweet.

According to a report in Dawn newspaper, General Sharif on Wednesday said 11 Indian soldiers were killed on 14 November after Pakistan Army "responded to unprovoked firing".

On 14 November, Pakistan had said seven of its soldiers were killed in firing by Indian troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.

Also on the same day, one terrorist was killed by Indian soldiers while attempting infiltration amid Pakistan Army's shelling and firing at one of three Indian positions on the LoC in Rajouri and Jammu districts.
