The death of the Indian border guard on Wednesday in Jammu provoked outrage, with India accusing Pakistani forces of mutilating his corpse.

The terrorism accusation stemmed from postage stamps Pakistan issued earlier this year of a charismatic Kashmiri militant commander, Burhan Wani, who was killed by Indian troops in July, 2016.
