ISLAMABAD: (APP) Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa Monday said India was continuously increasing escalation along the Line of Control and Working Boundary with clear pattern, by first using small arms, then mortar fire and ultimately artillery fire , and that too after a gap of 13 years.
Speaking in a TV programme he said, the incident was not limited to this day as India had started escalating the situation on the Line of Control (LoC) in September this year.
Indian escalation was continuing and two Jawans had been martyred since September this year. "While another seven embraced martyrdom in today's incident," he added.
Those violations were started during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session in September 2016, when Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif was there to present Pakistan's point of view effectively, he added.
Questions were also raised in India as well as internationally on Indian claim of surgical strike, he said.
Indian casualties as a result of retaliation from Pakistan were three times higher he said adding Pakistan openly announced its martyrs and acknowledged their bravery, while India always hid such killings or claimed smaller numbers.
