Islamabad (September 27, 2017): Indian Deputy High Commissioner was summoned to Foreign Office Wednesday and a strong protest was lodged over unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian forces in Kotli, Nakial Sector along the Line of Control.
In a statement, Foreign Office said despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations.
It said deliberate targeting of civilians is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws.
The Indian side was urged to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the Line of Control and Working Boundary.
India again resorted to unprovoked firing in Nakyal Sector along Line of Control (LoC), martyring a civilian and wounding four others.
According to ISPR, the Indian troops targeted civil population with heavy weapons, including mortars and anti-tank guided missiles.
Pakistan Army responded effectively, causing casualties to Indian troops.
