Indian Army crossed LoC: Islamabad

Defence Ministry Denies

Islamabad/New Delhi, Jan 6: Pakistan Sunday said that one of its soldiers was killed and another wounded when Indian troops crossed the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector and stormed a military post, an accusation denied by the other side.
A Pakistani military statement said the Indian troops came across the LoC in the Haji Pir sector, 80 kilometres (49 miles) north of  Islamabad, and "physically raided" a checkpost named Sawan Patra.
 "Pakistan Army troops effectively responded the attack successfully. One Pakistani soldier was killed while another was critically injured in the attack," it said in a statement.
 The Indian troops retreated, leaving behind a gun and a dagger, the military said.

 Meanwhile, a statement issued by Army said that in Islamabad, the Pakistani Army alleged that one of its soldiers was killed and another injured in Indian Army firing.
 “State-run Radio Pakistan quoted a military spokesman as saying that two Pakistani soldiers were wounded and one of them succumbed to his injuries later,” the statement said adding that Army Headquarters in New Delhi, however, said "no such incident has taken place where “our” soldiers have attacked any Pakistani post."
 Indian army sources said this allegation by the Pakistani army seems to be an attempt to cover up its firing on Indian posts in the Uri sector. (AFP/GKNN)
