India accuses Pakistan of planning deadly Kashmir incident

India's army chief accused Pakistan on Monday of planning a shootout along Kashmir's de facto border in which two Indian soldiers died, and said he had instructed commanders to respond aggressively if there is a provocation from the other side.


"The attack on January 8 was premeditated, a pre-planned activity. Such an operation requires planning, detailed reconnaissance," General Bikram Singh told a news conference in New Delhi. (Reuters)
