New Delhi, Jan 31: A report published in The Hindu that Indian soldiers had tortured and decapitated Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LoC) was totally baseless, Defence Minister A.K. Antony said Thursday.
A day after the Indian Army described as "erroneous and speculative" the report, the defence minister too lent it the weight of his voice. The allegations, Antony told reporters on the sidelines of a function here, were "totally baseless".
Antony said though tension along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir have "reduced" after the talks between the Directors General of Military Operations of the two countries, there was a need to remain vigilant and his Ministry has advised the government against being hasty on the issue of normalising ties with Pakistan.
