WikiLeaks shows PoK part of Indian administered Kashmir, no LoC

WikiLeaks  shows  PoK  part of  Indian administered Kashmir, no LoC

Whistleblower website WikiLeaks has shown Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) as part of Pakistan in it's recently released global map.

There is no mention of the Line of Control as is the common practice to refer to the two sides of LoC as India-controlled Kashmir and 

The interactive map was released by WikiLeaks on Monday, so as to help people to search into it's 1.7 million cables in a user-friendly manner.
The Indian Embassy in Washington did not respond to an email as whether it was aware of WikiLeak's goof up and what steps it has taken to depict factual representation of the international boundary.
Though on its website, WikiLeaks has said that the map was created using country boundary lines of 1975.
