ISLAMABAD - Pakistan summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia on Wednesday and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC) last week.
The Director-General (SA & SAARC), Dr Mohammad Faisal summoned the Indian envoy after three civilians were martyred and two injured on May 2nd and 5th following ceasefire violations along the LoC.
On May 2, 15-year old boy Tahir Hafeez was martyred while his nine-year-old sister Tahira sustained serious injuries in the Rakhchikri Sector along LoC.
Three days later on May 5, two innocent civilians including a woman Nasreen Bibi and 12-year old Muhammad Zahid s/o Shabbir Ahmed were martyred while a woman Sonia Bibi sustained injuries.
In a press statement, Pakistan's Foreign Office said, “ The Indian forces along the Line of Control and the working boundary are continuously targeting civilian populated areas with heavy weapons.
This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations.”
