Army & BSF bid farewell to soldiers killed in yesterday's cross-border attack
The BSF and Army today bid farewell to Head Constable Prem Sagar and Naib Subedar Paramjit Singh who were killed and their bodies mutilated by Pakistani forces in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir yesterday.

A wreath-laying ceremony was organised in Poonch in their honour which was attended by top ranking security officials.

In the hotline conversation between the Director Generals of Military Operations of both sides, India conveyed its concern about the presence of Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) training camps "in close vicinity" of LoC.

Taking cover under the heavy rocket and mortar fire, Pakistan's BAT had managed to sneak 250 meters across the LoC into the Poonch sector in Jammu and Kashmir and behead the two soldiers yesterday. The Indian Army has promised an "appropriate" response to the "despicable act".

Anti-Pakistan Protests were carried out in the Poonch and Jammu regions of J&K in response to this despicable act by the residents of that area.

The Border Security Forces said that Pakistan's attack was a very "well-planned operation", with the Pakistani army attacking four Indian posts first.

"The BAT had regular army and Mujahideen," said the Additional Director General of BSF's Western Command, KK Chawbey.

On the flip side of the coin, the Pakistan Army categorically rejected doing any such action and issued a statement saying "Pakistan Army is a highly professional force and shall never disrespect a soldier, even Indian."

But the way we see it, there have been lots of Border Action Team attacks in the past in which jawans have been beheaded or their bodies mutilated. These incidents of mutilating the dead bodies date back to October 28, 2016, January 2013, June 2008, during the 1999 Kargil conflict and in also in February 2000.
