ISLAMABAD -- Pakistan on Monday rejected India's accusation that it killed two soldiers in "unprovoked" firing and mutilated their bodies near the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Inter-Services Public Relations in a statement said the Pakistan Army "did not commit any ceasefire violation on LoC or a BAT (Border Action Team) action in Krishna Ghati Sector as alleged by India."

It said the "Indian blame of mutilating soldiers' bodies are also false".

The Indian Army said on Monday that the "despicable act" occurred in the Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch border district, and warned of "appropriate response" to the "unsoldierly act" by the Pakistan Army.

The Pakistan Foreign Office in a statement said the "Pakistan Army is a highly professional force and shall never disrespect a soldier, even Indian".
