Udhampur, May 1 (IBNS): The Indian Army on Monday warned of "appropriate response" to Pakistani after forces from the neighbouring country killed and mutilated two jawans in J&K's Udhampur along the Line of Control in the morning.

Reacting to the attack, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley told media that: "Such acts are unheard of even at a time of war."

The Indian Army in a statement said bodies of two soldiers were mutilated.

"In an unsoldierly act by the Pak Army the bodies of two of our soldiers in the patrol were mutilated," the Indian Army said in a statement.

"Such despicable act of Pakistan Army will be appropriately responded," read the statement where the Army warned the neighbours.

The Army said the deceased soldiers were part of a team on patrol between two forward posts in Udhampur  along the Line of Control.

One of the deceased were an Army jawan while the other one was a constable of the Border Security Force (BSF).

According to reports, the Pakistani soldiers allegedly crossed the LoC to launch the attack.
