IS­LAM­ABAD: Pak­istan “com­pletely re­jected” In­dia’s claim to have sent troops across its dis­puted bor­der in Kash­mir to kill sus­pected mil­i­tants, as In­dia evac­u­ated vil­lages near the fron­tier amid con­cerns about a mil­i­tary es­ca­la­tion.

In­dia said it had car­ried out “sur­gi­cal strikes” on Thurs­day, send­ing forces to kill men pre­par­ing to sneak into its ter­ri­tory and at­tack ma­jor cities.

In­dian of­fi­cials said troops had killed mil­i­tants num­ber­ing in the dou­ble dig­its.

Pak­istani prime min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif main­tained that In­dia fired un­pro­voked from Kash­mir and killed two sol­diers.
