    India matching up with Pak's dirty Game

    India today said that it would wait ``as long as possible'' for Pakistan to take back the bodies of its soldiers, but apprehended a negative response from Islamabad as it would expose the participation of its soldiers in the Kargil operations.
    According to a Foreign Office spokesman, Islambad was asked to take back the bodies of two of its officers, whose identity had been established by letters found on their person. The deceased were Capt. Imtiaz Malik of the 165 Mortar Regiment and Captain Karnal Sher of the 12 Northern Light Infantry (NLI).
    Pakistan responded through the Red Cross but did not specify the names and identities of the officers.
    India then handed over the documents establishing the identities of the officers. Islamabad, however, said the information which it had received was ``insufficient'' to establish the identities and requested that the bodies be handed over for verification.
    New Delhi said that it would be ready to receive in India, any person, including the family members, deputed by the Government of Pakistan to identify the bodies and take them home.
    In a related development, highly placed sources here said that the bodies of at least 30 officers of the Pakistan Army, including a Brigadier and 38 soldiers, killed in the Kargil conflict, had been identified.
