The Indian army on Monday told its Pakistani counterpart to take the bodies of two of its men killed during an attack on an army patrol in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sunderbani Sector on Sunday. The army also asked Pakistan to take over the bodies of its two hostile nationals, said an army officer who did not want to be named told PTI.

“Pakistan Army has been informed through established communication channels to take over the bodies of the hostile Pakistani Nationals. A stern warning has been conveyed to Pakistan Army to restrain the terrorists operating from its soil,” the officer said.

Two heavily armed Pakistani intruders and three Indian soldiers were killed in the gunfight after the Army foiled an infiltration bid along the LoC.

The intruders were believed to be members of a Border Action Team (BAT) comprising Pakistani soldiers and trained militants, an Army officer said on condition of anonymity on Sunday.
