"No Pakistani Soldier Crossed The LOC" - Pak. Govt

"No Pakistani Soldier Crossed The Line Of Control" - Pakistan Government

Rawalpindi, 29 July - A spokesman of ISPR refuted the Indian Army’s claim that Pakistani Troops had crossed 200 M on the Indian side of the LOC in Kupwara Sector, Occupied Kashmir which resulted into exchange of fire.

The spokesman said that no Pakistani soldier had crossed the LOC. He said that Indian soldiers wanted to establish a forward post in the area on Pakistani side of LOC which was objected by our soldiers.

On Pakistan’s’ objection, Indian troops opened indiscriminate and unprovoked fire. The Indian fire was immediately responded to. The firing continued – intermittently during the whole night and was still continuing till the issue of this Press Release.

The spokesman condemned the unprovoked firing by the Indian troops and strongly denied the report of any causality on the Pakistani side.

He said that we have material evidence to suggest that the Indian soldiers had crossed the LOC and wanted to establish a post on the Pakistani side of the LOC. After the fire fight, the Indian soldiers were forced to flee from the area leaving behind their weapons. The evidence will be shown to the Indians during the flag meeting, the spokesman concluded.
