New Delhi, July 17

"Such reports are utterly baseless, malicious and mischievous," Baglay said in response to a query on reports in Pakistani media.

His reaction came after a Pakistani media organisation reported at least 158 Indian soldiers have been killed on Monday as China fired rockets across the border on Indian border installations. — PTI
