Killing, mutilation of soldiers by Pakistan unacceptable: Congress

New Delhi: Condemning the deaths of Indian soldiers in unprovoked firing by Pakistan and the mutilation of their bodies, the Congress on Monday said “unacceptable” actions like these won’t help Pakistan in improving its internal situation.

“We condemn what Pakistan did. It must stop terrorism and realise that these actions are unacceptable,” Congress leader Anand Sharma said at a press conference here.

Noting that the Pakistani forces were attacking Indian posts even after the surgical strikes in September last year, he said it was a “cause of concern”.

“Six major attacks have taken place since the surgical strikes were carried out. 41 soldiers have been killed… it’s an issue of concern,” Sharma said.

He criticised the central government for having “no plans” to stop repeated attacks by Pakistan on Indian interests.

The former Union Minister also expressed concern over the situation in the Kashmir Valley.
