Reacting on the beheading of two Indian soldiers by Pakistan’s Border Action Team (BAT), India's Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) conveyed to the Pakistani military that such kind of act was a "dastardly and inhuman act" which called for a response and unequivocal condemnation.

India’s DGMO expressed "grave concern" about the killing and beheading of two soldiers by Pakistan in the Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.

"The DGMO of the Indian army conveyed that such a dastardly and inhuman act is beyond any norms of civility and merits unequivocal condemnation and response," the army said in a statement.

 “Full fire support was provided by the Pakistani Army post located in the vicinity of the incident site,” said DGMO.

The army said the DGMO also conveyed India's concerns about the presence of Border Action Team (BAT) training camps in close vicinity of the Line of Control in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir and vowed an "appropriate" response to the "despicable act". The Pakistan army has denied that it was involved in the attack.
