A Pakistani government official Saturday said Indian troops have fired across the Line of Control in Pakistan administered Kashmir, killing a woman and wounding six others.
Deputy commissioner Hameed Kiani said the ceasefire violation by Indian forces took place in the Kotli district in PaK.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal today summoned India’s Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh here to protest “unprovoked ceasefire violations” by Indian forces along the LoC.
Faisal alleged Indian forces along the LoC and the international border are continuously targeting civilian populated areas with heavy weapons.
He said unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when Indian forces committed 1,970 ceasefire violations.
“The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws,” he said adding that ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation.
He urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement, investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations, instruct Indian forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and the international border.
He also urged India to permit the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per UN Security Council resolutions.
India maintains that the UNMOGIP has outlived its utility and is irrelevant after the Shimla Agreement and the consequent establishment of the Line of Control.
