India rejects Aziz's allegations to EAM over cross-border firing as baseless
New Delhi, Jan. 3 : In a meeting with the Pakistan's Foreign Secretary, India on Friday rejected the allegations made by Pakistan's Foreign Affairs Adviser Sartaj Aziz to the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj over cross-border firing as baseless.
In the letter, Pakistan had alleged that India killed two Pakistani Rangers in cold blood after calling them for a meeting on the International Border earlier on Wednesday.
The External Affairs Ministry strongly denied the accusation, saying this had already been conveyed at a meeting in Islamabad between Pakistan's Foreign Secretary and India's High Commissioner.
The Adviser to the Pakistan Prime Minister on National Security and Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz, had earlier on Friday lodged a protest with Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, calling for an investigation into the killing of his nation's soldiers allegedly by unfair means along the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir.
