New Delhi, Aug 6: There seems to be a major goof-up between the Army & Defence Ministry over the LoC incident.





Defence Minister A K Anthony told Parliament today:  "The ambush was carried out by approximately 20 heavily armed terrorists along with persons dressed in Pakistan Army uniforms."

At the same time a press release from Army PRO in Jammu says:"The ambush was carried out by approximately 20 heavily armed terrorists along with soldiers of Pak Army."

The government has come under heavy criticism after Antony's statement with leader of Opposition questioning by saying that the statement provides "an escape route to Pakistan".

Jaitley said, since Pakistan is in denial mode on everything, you are providing an opportunity to Pakistan that the attackers were non-state actors.

 Sources said, the army does not know how the change in wording had taken place. After the goof up,  Lt Gen Vinod Bhatia, Director General Military Operations also met Defence Minister Antony in Parliament.
