SIMLA, India--The leaders of India and Pakistan signed an agreement early Monday calling for partial troop with-drawals along their 800-mile common border.

Pakistani spokesmen also said the two sides agreed to "reduce tension" in disputed Kashmir, including troop pullbacks from the explosive ceasefire line there, and that the pact did not include handing over territory taken in the India-Pakistan war last December.

Indian sources maintained, however, that the agreement did not call for with-drawals in Kashmir.

Prime Minister Indira Gandhi of India and President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto of Pakistan signed the agreement at a hastily arranged ceremony nine hours before Bhutto was scheduled to return to Pakistan, culminating five days of tough summit bargaining at this Himalayan hill station resort.
