Indian Army officials on Sunday told their Pakistan counterparts that they can receive the bodies of 5-7 Pakistan Border Action Teams (BATs) army regulars/terrorists) eliminated while attempting an infiltration bid.

''Have offered Pakistan Army to take over the dead bodies of 5-7 Pakistan Border Action Teams (BATs) army regulars/terrorists. Pakistan Army has been offered to approach with white flag and take over the dead bodies for last rites,'' news agency ANI reported quoting Indian Army.

However, the Army is yet to receive a response from Pakistan.

Indian Army on Saturday said to have foiled an infiltration attempt by Pakistani BATs in Jammu and Kashmir`s Keran Sector while eliminating five-seven Pakistani Army regulars and terrorists.

"In the last 36 hours, the Indian Army has foiled an infiltration attempt by a Pakistani BAT (Border Action Team) squad in Keran Sector. Five-seven Pakistani army regulars/terrorists eliminated; their bodies are lying on the LoC, not retrieved yet due to heavy firing," Indian Army said in a statement.

The LoC in the last few days has been volatile with two armies frequently trading heavy fire including the use of higher calibre weapons.

This comes after Indian Army on Friday alleged that Pakistani terrorists were plotting an attack on Amarnath Yatra.

The security forces have also recovered an American made M24 sniper rifle and mine with Pakistani Ordnance Factory (POF) markings on it.

The government of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday had issued a security advisory for tourists and Amarnath pilgrims urging them to curtail their stay in the valley immediately.
