JAMMU: Five bodies of Pakistani soldiers killed by security forces when they tried to capture an Indian post along the Line of Control on Saturday, were handed over to Pakistani Army authorities at Chakla post in Chhamb sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday, a defence spokesman said here.

The bodies were handed over with full military honours by the Indian military authorities after a request from Islamabad, which had earlier denied that its troops were involved in attacking the border post, he said. (PTI)
