Pakistan grills Indian top envoy in Islamabad

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Friday has summoned Indian Chargé d'Affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia to condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC) in Shahkot and Khuiratta Sectors on 24th October, 2019.

According to Foreign Office, Director General (SA & SAARC) Dr. Mohammad Faisal summoned Indian Chargé d'Affaires to protest the unprovoked firing by Indian Army.

Due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by Indian Army, three innocent civilians, Ilm Din, s/o Zulfiqar, Gul Zarin, s/o Ilm Din and Sultan, s/o Gul Zarin, residents of village Lala, Tehsil Athmaqam, District Neelum, embraced shahadat, while one child, Iqra d/o Muhammad Aftab, age 4 years, resident of village Jugulpur, Tehsil & District Khuiratta, sustained serious injuries.

The Indian occupation forces along the LoC and Working boundary have continuously been targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars, and automatic weapons, which still continues.

This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations.
