Pakistan summons Acting Indian Deputy High Commissioner over LoC violations
ISLAMABAD, SEPT 24 (DNA) – The Acting Director General (SA & SAARC) summoned the acting Indian Deputy High Commissioner, and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces in Kotli/Nikial Sub Sector on 22 September 2017, resulting in the shahadat of a 22 years old girl, Tashiba, resident of village Balakot, and injuries to 2 others, including a female. (Despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations. In 2017 to date, Indian forces have carried out 873 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, resulting in the Shahadats of 39 innocent civilians and injuries to 144, as compared to 382 ceasefire violations in 2016).
The deliberate targeting of civilians is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws.
The Acting Director General 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. He urged that the Indian side should permit UNMOGIP to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.
