Pak summons Indian High Commissioner over LoC

Pak summons Indian High Commissioner over LoC

ISLAMABAD, (DNA):  The foreign office on Tuesday summoned Indian High Commissioner JP Singh and registered strong protest over its continued violation of the Line of Control and Working Boundary ceasefire agreement.

Indian forces yet again resorted to unprovoked firing at the Line of Control (LoC) on Sunday, Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

Last week Indian forces yet again violated the LoC as they targeted civil population. Four civilians in Nakial sector were martyred while six others were seriously injured due to the firing.

Tensions have flared between the two nuclear armed states after the killing of a Kashmiri separatist Burhani Wani by Indian forces in July. The occupied valley has been under the grip of a curfew and protests have been dispersed by pellet firing which have rendered scores of people blind.

Pakistan has protested the continued violation of human rights by Indian troops at various international forums including the United Nations.

The Director General (SA & SAARC), Dr. Mohammad Faisal, summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner, Mr. J.P. Singh, today (8 November 2016) and strongly condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations on 7 November 2016,

by the Indian Forces on the LoC in Nikial and Jandrot sectors, resulting in shahadat of 3 civilians, including a woman and injuries to four others, including a 5 years old boy,” a Foreign Office statement issued here said.
