New Delhi [India], July 13 (ANI): The Ministry of External affairs on Thursday rubbished claims of Pakistan media hinting use of chemical weapons in Kashmir. MEA spokesperson Gopal Baglay on Thursday said, "The claims are completely baseless and incorrect. India is against the use of chemical weapons anywhere in the world." "It was quite surprising to see that what the Government of Pakistan is talking about. They have taken the leaf out of the book of Lashkar-e-Taiba on those ridiculous comments. The government is taking its cue from an internationally banned terrorist organisation," he added. Pakistan earlier last week alleged that the Indian security forces are using ammunition containing chemical agents in Jammu and Kashmir. (ANI)
