Earlier on Wednesday,General Raheel Sharif, Pakistan Army Chief in a rare media meet had claimed that his troops killed at least 11 Indian jawans on the same day when seven Pakistani soldiers were killed in retaliatory firing by Indian troops across the LoC. He went on to claim that Pakistan has killed “40-44 Indian troops” in the current clashes but the Indian army was refusing to accept and own its casualties.
General Raheel said India should “show courage” and own the deaths of its security personnel. General Sharif is set to retire this month, and said that a message has been conveyed to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that his “aggressive actions” will not bear any results.
