JAMMU, India (REUTERS) - India slammed arch-rival Pakistan on Wednesday over a firefight in the disputed territory of Kashmir in which two of its soldiers were killed, saying the mutilation of one of the bodies was "inhuman".

Officials said Pakistan's envoy to New Delhi was summoned during the day to register a protest over Tuesday's incident, in which Pakistani troops crossed the territory's heavily militarised Line of Control (LoC) and fired at an Indian army patrol.

The body of one of the soldiers was found "badly mutilated" in a forested area on the side controlled by India, Mr Rajesh Kalia, a spokesman for the Indian army's Northern Command, said.

However, he denied Indian media reports that one of the bodies had been decapitated and the throat of another had been slit.
