On Thursday morning, when the Indian Army's DGMO Lt. Gen.

Their source: a journalist tweeting, quoting his 'independent' but unnamed sources, 'confirmed' by a 'Defence analyst' who, too, quoted unnamed sources and claimed that he had spoken to "eyewitnesses, who confirmed that the bodies (of Indian soldiers) were not picked up as of this (Thursday) evening".
