Representatives of the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) on Sunday met Pakistani officials at the General Headquarters Rawalpindi, where they were handed over a dossier on repeated "violations of the ceasefire agreement" by India, Pakistan Foreign Office said.

The detailed dossier was given to UNMOGIP representatives in view of the death of four people, including three children, in firing by Indian forces in Khuiratta Sector of the LoC, Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria said on twitter.

Pakistan has asked the UNMOGIP to investigate the incident, he said.

Pakistan's Ambassador to the UN Maleeha Lodhi had earlier also reportedly written to the UNSC President and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon alleging that Indian troops in Kashmir had launched artillery barrages.

India has maintained that UNMOGIP has outlived its utility and is irrelevant after the Simla Agreement and the consequent establishment of the Line of Control (LoC). India has always stated that it has "no role to play whatsoever".
