India rejects Pak proposal for UN probe

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Jan 10 � India today outrightly rejected Pakistan�s proposal for UN probe into the incident in which two Indian soldiers were killed across the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, making it clear it does not want to internationalise the issue, reports PTI.

The unprovoked attack by Pakistani troops in Poonch sector on January eight in which the two jawans were killed and subsequent developments figured at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) which was briefed about the incident by Defence Minister A K Antony.

�We are certainly not going to agree to internationalise the issue or allow the United Nations to hold an enquiry. That demand is obviously rejected out of hand,� Finance Minister P Chidambaram told a press conference after the meetings of the Union Cabinet and CCS presided by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Reacting to Pakistan�s proposal, National Security Advisor Shivshanker Menon asserted that the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) has no role. �They don�t have a role,� he said in a one-lie reply.

Menon also said there has been an �increase� in the incidents of ceasefire violations and infiltration attempts not just in the last few months.
