After breaking his silence, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh warned Pakistan that there cannot be “business as usual” with it if incidents like “barbaric killing” continue.
Mr. Singh stated his first statement on barbaric killing of two Indian soldiers whose bodies mutilated on the Line of Control by Pakistani troops.
“What happened at the Line of Control is unacceptable,” Singh said, source said.
On the occasion of the 65th Army Day in the national capital hosted by Army Chief Gen Bikram Singh, Mr. Singh said, “Those responsible for this crime (of mutilating soldiers’ bodies) will have to be brought to book.”
Asking about Pakistan’s denial act over the whole controversial matter, PM said, “I hope Pakistan realises this”.
He added that now the future of the peace process depends on Pakistan taking appropriate steps as it could not be possible to openly discuss the options against Pakistan.
