The Indian Army on Monday said in a tweet that Pakistan Army had mutilated body of two Indian soldiers. However, the Indian Army refused to furnish details of incident under the Right to Information (RTI) Act saying it could be against national security.

However, the Central Information Commission did not buy the arguments of Indian Army that it will be against national security.

"People of the country have the right to know about soldiers who lay down their lives in the line of duty," Information Commissioner Diya Prakash Sinha had said in his order.

"Pakistan Army carried out unprovoked rocket and forward mortar firing on two forward posts on the Line of Control in Krishna Ghati sector. Simultaneously, BAT action was launched on a patrol operating in between the two posts," the Northern Command of the Indian army said in the statement. BAT is the Pakistan army's Border Action Team.
