Pakistan, Islamabad News – India has returned the body of a Pakistani soldier who inadvertently strayed across the Line of Control (LoC) on Thursday, Pak army said on Friday.
The soldier, Ikhlaq Ahmed, was killed by the Indian army, officials on both sides said on Friday.
The ISPR said civilians had seen the soldier being picked up and questioned by the Indian military, but that when the military commanders from both sides spoke by telephone on Friday, the Indian commander said the Pakistani had been killed.
“We condemn such an inhuman and brutal act of killing our soldier after he had identified himself and explained his position,” the army said in a text message. “We have returned Indian soldiers in the past who have similarly strayed.”
