In the micro-blogging site Twitter, Omar said the report of mutilating of Indian troops was "unacceptable in any civilised society".

"Violation of the ceasefire is bad enough, to resort to mutilating soldiers is unacceptable in any civilised society," Omar tweeted.

He said that it was an attempt to derail the dialogue process between the two countries. "Clearly someone up the chain of command wants to do everything to derail any dialogue between the two countries," he said.

Omar expressed concern over the incident and said this escalation must cease as it may increase the infiltration from across the border. "That having been said, ceasefire must hold else infiltration will shoot up manifold under cover provided by firing," he said.

Pakistani troops have on Tuesday crossed into Indian territory and ambushed an army patrol party killing two soldiers whose heads were reportedly chopped off.
