Pakistan summons Indian envoy over civilian killings at LoC

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday condemned the unprovoked Indian ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC), terming the same a threat to regional peace and security, which might lead to a strategic miscalculation.

Foreign Office spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia again on Tuesday and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian forces along the LoC on October 6 and 7, a Foreign Office statement said.

An old lady Nazira Begum, wife of Muhammad Hussain, aged 69 years, was killed due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian army in Chirikot Sector. Three other civilians, Manzoor son of Ashraf, aged 43 years, Jamil son of Misri, aged 40 years, and Mushtaq son of Ghulam Muhammad, aged 46 years, residents of Kakuta village sustained serious injuries.

Indian forces along the LoC and Working Boundary have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars, and automatic weapons.

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

The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas was indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws.
