Pakistan Army today said that at least two Indian soldiers were killed when it destroyed an army post that was used to kill a minor across the Line of Control, a claim rejected by the Indian Army as "baseless".

Eight-year-old Ayan was killed in Jajot village due to fire allegedly by the Indian troops, said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing of the Pakistan Army.

"Pakistan Army troops neutralised Indian post which targeted a minor along LOC. Two Indian soldiers killed," it claimed.

In New Delhi, an Indian Army source rejected the Pakistan Army's claim as "baseless".
