India denies report U.S. troops on soil

• AFP

India has denied as “factually incorrect” a report that US special forces were stationed in the country as part of counter-terrorism cooperation.

Media reports quoted top Pentagon commander Admiral Robert Willard as telling a Congressional hearing on Thursday that US special forces teams were stationed in five South Asian countries, including India and Sri Lanka.

“The report is factually incorrect in so far as the reference to India is concerned,” Indian defence ministry spokesman Sitanshu Kar said in a statement late on Friday.
