One of Indian soldiers killed in Kashmir beheaded: Army
NEW DELHI (AFP) - One of the two Indian soldiers killed in a clash along the disputed Kashmir border was decapitated by Pakistani troops who then carried away his head, India's chief military spokesman said on Wednesday.
"We can confirm that one of the Indian soldiers was beheaded by the Pakistani army in Kashmir," the spokesman J. Dahiya told AFP.
"It was a dastardly act as they have taken away the head," he added.
Military sources had earlier indicated that the soldier had been decapitated but Mr Dahiya said he was only able to confirm the beheading on Wednesday afternoon after the victim's next of kin had been informed.
