DGMO tells Pakistani counterpart: These are dastardly acts

New Delhi: Indian Directors General of Military Operations (DGMO) and his Pakistani counterpart spoke on the hotline on Tuesday. The DGMO expressed grave concern over yesterday's incident. Such dastardly, inhuman act is beyond any norms of civility and merits unequivocal condemnation and response, it said. They expressed grave concerns over the mutilated bodies of Indian soldiers.

Two soldiers were beheaded and one was injured by the Pakistani Border Action Team that sneaked Indian territory under cover of heavy shelling in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

In a strict manner, DGMO Lt Gen AK Bhatt said that such dastardly, inhuman act is beyond any norms of civility and merits unequivocal condemnation and response.

Two soldiers, Head constable Prem Sagar of 299th Battalion of BSF and Naib Subedar Paramjeet Singh of 22 Sikh Infantry were killed. The beheaded bodies of the soldiers were handed over to the respective families. Earlier in the day, Paramjeet Singh's daughter said that unless the head is handed over to them, the cremation won't take place.

Earlier the Defence Minister Arun Jaitley had said on Monday that the sacrifice of two soldiers won't go in vain.
