    by TimesNow

    Outraged by the brutal killing of two of its soldiers by intruding Pakistani troops, India on Wednesday (January 9) strongly protested to Pakistan, warning that the "unacceptable" incident will have adverse impact on the ties. As strong reactions by the government and political parties came, Pakistan High Commission Salman Bashir was summoned by Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai, who conveyed India's "deepest concern and protest" over yesterday's attack in which two Indian soldiers were killed and their bodies subjected to "barbaric and inhuman mutilation". Pakistan was also asked to immediately investigate these actions that are in contravention of all norms of international conduct and ensure that these do not recur.
