*ISLAMBAD - The Ministry of Foreign Office summoned on Wednesday the Indian deputy high commissioner over the neighbouring country’s violation of the ceasefire agreement along the Line of Control. *

The foreign office registered a protest and South Asia Director General Dr Mohammad Faisal handed a demarche to Gaurav Ahluwalia.

Pakistan said that 38-year-old Sarfraz Ahmed died because of heavy Indian shelling in India-administered Kashmir’s Tatta Pani (Hot Spring) sector.

Tensions have been high between the two countries since February 27’s skirmishes along the Line of Control. Pakistan shot down an Indian fighter plane that crossed into Pakistan’s territory and captured its pilot. He was released a day later.
