Pak-India DGMOs establish hotline contact after IoK attack

RAWALPINDI: Following the Uri army base attack in the Indian-held Kashmir, a hotline contact was established on Sunday between the directors general of military operations (DGMOs) of India and Pakistan, according to the ISPR.

Pakistan vehemently denied Indian allegations over the attack on army base in Indian-held Kashmir, saying if there exists any credible information then it should be shared.

The contact took place upon India’s request around afternoon, said the ISPR, adding that the situation of the Line of Control was discussed during the telephone conversation.

Pakistan remained firm upon its stance and rejected India’s baseless and premature allegations.

Pakistan reiterated that it is determined not to let its territory be used against any country and there are strict security arrangements in place around the working boundary and LoC, said the ISPR.

Pakistan Defence Minister Khawaja Asif also reacted to the Indian allegations and said that the situation deteriorated in Indian-held Kashmir due to Indian atrocities and abuse of human rights.

Khawaja Asif while talking to Geo News said that Pakistan has nothing to do with the Uri incident, adding that Pakistan only extends moral support to Kashmiris.

It was shortly after the rebel-attack on an army brigade headquarter in Indian Occupied Kashmir on Sunday that the Indian authorities along with its media started the blame game against Pakistan.

The government officials did not hold back while putting the unsubstantiated blame on Pakistan. Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh blamed Pakistan for today’s attack.

Suspected rebels attacked an Indian army brigade headquarters near the de factor border with Pakistan on Sunday, killing 17 soldiers in the most deadly such attack in Occupied Kashmir in recent years.

Four "fidayeen" - or commando-style gunmen willing to fight to the death - were confirmed killed after penetrating the base in Uri near the Line of Control with Pakistan, an Indian army spokesman said.
