Full story: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-11967664
Pakistani newspapers have admitted they were hoaxed after publishing reports based on fake Wikileaks cables containing anti-Indian propaganda...
...The fake cables are believed to have been planted by Pakistani intelligence.
The Guardian, a British newspaper which has all of the 250,000 leaked Wikileaks cables, said that an extensive search of the database had found nothing to match any of the claims in the Pakistani media...
...According to the erroneous reports, Indian spies were said to be supporting Islamist militants in Pakistan's north-western tribal region of Waziristan and the south-western province of Balochistan.
US diplomats were also said to believe the Indian Army was faction-ridden; a "Bosnia-like genocide" was happening in Indian-administered Kashmir; and the Indian military was supporting "Hindu fanatic groups".
The bogus cables also referred to the confession of Ajmal Qasab, the only surviving gunman of the 2008 Mumbai attacks, calling it funny and "shockingly immature".
One of the fake messages was said to have claimed that US diplomats had referred to former Indian Army chief General Deepak Kapoor as "an incompetent combat leader and rather a geek".
"His war doctrine, suggesting eliminating China and Pakistan in a simultaneous war front was termed as 'much far from reality'," reported the News, a daily newspaper.
Another army chief had apparently been described as "an egotist, self-obsessed, petulant and idiosyncratic general, a braggadocio and a show-off, who has been disliked (and barely tolerated) by all his subordinates".
The report also said that US diplomats had compared yet another Indian general in Indian-administered Kashmir to "General Milosevic of Bosnia with regard to butchering Muslims through war crimes"...
