Earlier on Friday, the Supreme Court sought a response from the Centre on the plea of the Capt Kalia's father N K Kalia seeking a direction to the government to raise the case of his son's torture at the International Court of Justice.
The severely mutilated body of Capt Kalia of 4 Jat, who led the first team to investigate the Pakistani intrusion in Kargil, was handed over to the Indian Army 20 days after he was captured on May 15, 1999. The autopsy report indicated extreme ante mortem torture which included cigarette burns, piercing of ear drums with hot iron rods and amputated vital organs.
Malik said, "Whenever any human being dies nobody would hesitate to say sorry for that... (But) when there is war, bullet doesn't see who is there? You see the situation there (in Kargil), and that is why you see the statement of president of Pakistan and also the vision of your prime minister. What we want is peace. So, we don't want these things to be repeated. That's why I am here, that's why we will work."
