The army media wing on Saturday warned that the army and Indian media were projecting two Pakistani civilians who had inadvertently crossed the Control Line (LoC) last month as terrorists in "another attempt to fabricate facts."
On August 21, two farmers in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, identified as Muhammad Nazeem, 21, and Khalil Ahmed, 30, involuntarily crossed the LoC near Hajipir while they were mowing, a press release issued by the Inter. -He said Public Relations Services (ISPR).

However, on September 2, some Indian media "fabricated the facts" and portrayed the two Pakistani individuals as members of a proscribed organization.
According to the press release, the false Indian story was communicated to the Indian authorities during the following weekly direct line contact on September 3.
Then, "the Indian side assured that due process of law was in place and the result will be shared with the Pakistani authorities," the army media wing said.
However, in total disregard for the formal mechanisms of information exchange, "the Indian army presented a false and invented story during a press on September 4 that portrayed individuals as terrorists," the statement said.
He said detained Pakistani civilians were also forced to give a confessional statement under duress from the Indian army that they were trained in Pakistan and belonged to Rawalpindi.
"The attempt is another Indian effort to prepare the grounds for a false flag operation," the ISPR said, adding that Pakistan was addressing a formal case on evidence-based development to "expose Indian lies."
The statement clarified that both individuals in Indian custody are involuntary crossings that are local farmers and residents of the Terraban (Hillan) village along the LoC and not Rawalpindi.
