Jammu: In a brigadier-level flag meeting India and Pakistan on Monday traded accusations over the recent barbaric incident of mutilation, and ceasefire violations in disputed Kashmir . 

During the meet which lasted about an hour, the Indian delegation formally lodged a strong protest with Pakistan over the inhuman mutilation and beheading of the Indian soldier near Poonch area on January 6 allegedly by Pakistani regulars.  

Indian army chief has accused Pakistan of planning the clash that resulted the death of two Indian soldiers.
India told Pakistan to return the severed head of the slain soldier. It also told Pak Army that violation of ceasefire would not be tolerated.

Before the meet the Indian Army Chief General Bikram Singh had said, “the attack was "premeditated" and warned that India would be "aggressive and offensive in the face of provocation."

Pakistan denies its forces were responsible for the deaths.

Contrary, Pakistan has accused Indian troops of killing two Pakistani soldiers in separate incidents last week along the Line of Control, a de facto border separating Indian and Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.

The comments came as India and Pakistan military commanders held a flag meeting on January 14 along the border to defuse the growing tensions.

Notably, nothing has came out in this meeting with both sides accusing each other's armies of violating a 2003 cease-fire as both the nations failed to reach any agreement.
