Pakistan condemns ceasefire violations, summons India's deputy high commissioner
Pakistan on Wednesday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh after two civilians were killed and six others injured in alleged ceasefire violations
Islamabad: Pakistan on Wednesday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh after two civilians were killed and six others injured in alleged ceasefire violations along the Line of Control by Indian troops.
Foreign ministry spokesman Nafees Zakaria said Indian security forces resorted to firing in Baroh and Tandar sectors on Tuesday.
Director General (SA and SAARC) Mohammad Faisal summoned Singh and "condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations" by Indian security forces.
"The deliberate targeting of civilians is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws", Faisal said.
He urged India to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement and investigate the incidents of ceasefire violations along the LoC.
The Pakistani foreign ministry previously summoned the Indian envoy for two consecutive days on 8-9 July, over the same issue, claiming that more civilians were killed in firing by Indian troops.
