New Delhi : Rejecting report claimed by a Pakistani newspaper over India's surgical strike across Line of Control, MEA said it is "completely concocted and baseless".

In a bid to claim their words, it seems like Pakistan government is now using media as its tool to spread the news that India's claims of surgical strikes are false.
Pakistan has been denying surgical strikes from the first day and claiming it to be a routine cross border firing.
According to the report by Pakistani newspaper The News International carries an article that seeks to bolster the Nawaz Sharif government and the Pakistani army.
That story says "an informed official source" told Pakistani officials in Berlin that "the Indian Foreign Secretary has categorically denied and said that there was no 'surgical strike' undertaken by Indian Army inside Azad Kashmir, Pakistan."
Azad Kashmir is the name given by Islamabad to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. India took no time in rejecting the media report.
