RAWALPINDI:(APS)October 28, 2016-Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Friday rejected Indian claims in connection with the alleged killings of Pakistani troops along the Working Boundary.
“Indian claims of killing any Pakistani soldier at the Working Boundary is absolutely baseless and untrue,” the ISPR said in a statement.
“India’s claim is part of their propaganda campaign aimed to hide their losses at the Working Boundary and also divert world attention from the Kashmir issue.”
Earlier on Friday, Indian media quoted India’s Border Security Force (BSF) as claiming that 15 personnel of Pakistan Rangers were killed during firing across the border.
The claims come hours after Pakistan declared an official of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, Surjeet Singh, as persona non grata and asked him to leave the country by Oct 29 after much the same treatment was meted out by India to a staffer of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi, Mehmood Akhtar.
