JAMMU, India (REUTERS) - India accused Pakistan of sending troops across the line dividing the disputed region of Kashmir on Tuesday, and said two of its soldiers were killed and one was wounded in a half-hour gunfight.

One military official told India's Times Now news channel that the body of one of the slain soldiers was later found mutilated in a forested area of the Himalayan territory.

A Pakistani army spokesman denied what it said were Indian allegations of "unprovoked firing" across the heavily militarised Line of Control (LoC) between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

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