Indian PM: Relations with Pakistan 'cannot be business as usual' after Kashmir violence

India's prime minister says relations with archrival Pakistan "cannot be business as usual" in the wake of a spate of violence in Kashmir, including the beheading of an Indian soldier.

Indian army officials have blamed the beheading on Pakistani soldiers who crossed the so-called Line of Control that divides the Himalayan region, which is split between the two countries but claimed in its entirety by both.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that the killing of the two Indian soldiers was "unacceptable." He made the brief comments to reporters at a New Delhi gathering for India's annual day honoring the military.
