Islamabad (Pakistan), Dec 26 (ANI): The Pakistan Foreign Office on Tuesday denied that Indian Army commandos crossed over the Line of Control (LoC) on Monday and killed three Pakistani soldiers to avenge the killing of four Indian troops.

Pakistan summoned India's acting Deputy High Commissioner in Islamabad, JP Singh, over the issue, the Dawn reported.

Interestingly, Islamabad admitted that three of its soldiers were killed and one injured in the Indian firing at LoC.

According to an official statement by Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), firing by the Indian forces in Rakhchikri sector of Poonch district had "provided a cover for the planting of IEDs by non-state actors."

Two days after four Indian soldiers were killed in a ceasefire violation by the Pakistan Army on the LoC, the Indian security forces crossed the LoC and killed three Pakistani soldiers, as per intelligence sources. (ANI)
