Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has issued a firm denial and criticised the statements by authorities in New Delhi about the alleged killing of two Indian soldiers in Kashmir.

Khar claimed there were contradictions in the statements of Indian officials with regard to the incidents, reports The Dawn.

Khar further said she hoped that the incidents reported on the line of control (LoC) would not affect the dialogue that has been underway between India and Pakistan.

India said Pakistan sent troops across the heavily militarised LoC on Tuesday, adding that two of its soldiers were killed and one was wounded in a half-hour gunfight.

The Pakistani army had later denied what it said were Indian allegations of "unprovoked firing" across the LoC.

The incident came two days after a clash along the LoC in which Pakistan said one of its soldiers had been killed after an Indian incursion. India had denied its troops crossed the line. (ANI)
