Pak summons Indian Deputy High Commissioner over ceasefire violation

Islamabad [Pakistan]: Pakistan on Thursday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner over the alleged ceasefire violations by India on the Line of Control.

A Pakistan Foreign Ministry statement said that “the Director General (SA & SAARC), Dr. Mohammad Faisal, summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces on 1 June, 2017 at 0715 hours, on the LoC in Battal, Jandrot and Kotli sectors”.

Pakistan claimed that two Pakistani civilians were killed and five others were injured in the ceasefire violation.

“The deliberate targeting of civilians is indeed condemnable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws,” said the statement.

The Director General urged the Indian side “to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding; 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”. (ANI)
