Islamabad: Chief Justice of Pakistan Anwar Zaheer Jamali has rejected an invitation for a conference scheduled in New Delhi next month amid rising tensions between the two neighbouring countries.

In a letter to the Indian Supreme Court he wrote that in the present conditions he could not attend the meeting, Geo News reported on Friday.

The Chief Justice was invited to attend the conference scheduled from October 21 to 23.

Pakistan has claimed that two soldiers were killed in Indian Army shelling across the Line of Control (LoC) late Wednesday. It has denied that India carried out “surgical strikes” behind the LoC to destroy seven terror launch pads and kill between 35 and 40 terrorists waiting to cross into Kashmir.
