Pakistan Deputy High Commissioner Summoned For Violation At LOC
Strong concern was also expressed at continued unprovoked firing by Pakistan forces across the Line of Control and the International Boundary in violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding
Pakistan Deputy High Commissioner Syed Haider Shah was summoned today and a strong protest was lodged at the death of three Indian minor children in unprovoked ceasefire violation by the Pakistan forces in the Poonch sector on 2 October 2017.
It was conveyed that such deliberate targeting of civilians was not acceptable and was against humanitarian norms and practices.
Strong concern was also expressed at continued unprovoked firing by Pakistan forces across the Line of Control and the International Boundary in violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding.
503 such violations have been carried out by Pakistan forces so far during 2017.
This comes in a day after Pakistan summoned India's deputy high commissioner over the alleged ceasefire violations by the Indian troops along the Line of Control.
The Foreign Office, in a statement, alleged that Indian forces resorted to firing in Rukh Chakri and Rawalakot Sectors on September 30 and October 2, killing three civilians and injuring five others, including a woman. Director General (South Asia and SAARC) Mohammad Faisal summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh and "condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations" by the Indian forces, it said.
