ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday summoned India’s Deputy High Commissioner and condemned the alleged “unprovoked ceasefire violations” by Indian troops across the Line of Control which resulted in the death of two Pakistani civilians.

Director General (South Asia and SAARC) Mohammad Faisal, who is also the foreign ministry spokesman, summoned Gaurav Ahluwalia and “condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian forces along the Line of Control on July 22 and July 23,” the Foreign Office (FO) said in a statement.

On July 22, the firing in the Bagsar Sector along the LoC resulted in the death of a 12-year-old boy and injured another person, it said.

On July 23, in Hotspring, Jandrot and Banchirian Sectors, a woman was killed while three civilians from Hot Spring Sector and one from Banchirian sector sustained serious injuries, it added.

Faisal said that the Indian forces along the LoC and the Working boundary are “continuously targeting civilian populated areas with heavy weapons.”

“This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violation,” it alleged.

“The ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation,” the statement said.

Faisal urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement; investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary. PTI
