Indian troops committed an unprovoked ceasefire violation and targeted a UNMOGIP vehicle near the LoC in the Khanjar sector, a press release by the Inter-Services Public Relations said. The vehicle carrying UNMOGIP officers Major Emmanual of the Philippines and Major Mirko of Croatia were visiting the LoC with UNMOGIP blue flag hoisted as per procedure.
