Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], May 2 (ANI): Lashing out at the Centre over the mutilation of two Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir's Krishna Ghati sector by the Pakistan Army, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) party chief Asaduddin Owaisi asked the Centre to hold a dialogue, instead of sloganeering. "It is time the Government walked the talk. How long they are going to hide behind rhetoric and so called aggressive nationalism? The government must take serious note of all these things," Owaisi said. He further insisted that the Government must take important steps to protect lives of the soldiers of the nation. Earlier on Monday, the Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers in Krishna Ghati sector along the Line of Control. The Indian Army confirmed the involvement of the BAT in the gruesome act beheading Indian soldier. The Pakistani soldiers along with their BAT, which include trained border inhabitants, launched a joint attack. They first fired rockets and followed this up with firing from automatic weapons, near Kranti Post located in Poonch's Krishna Ghati Sector around 8.30 a.m. The Pakistanis then crossed the LoC, entered 200 meters into Indian Territory, and attacked a joint patrol of the Army and Border Security Force (BSF), heading towards a nearby post. It is the same Krishna Ghati sector where the Pakistani BAT had beheaded Lance Naik Hemraj and badly severed the head of Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh of 13 Rajputana Rifles, on January 8, 2013. (ANI)
