Indian HC summoned over Kashmir firing

ISLAMABAD: Indian Deputy High Commissioner was summoned to the Foreign Office Wednesday and a strong protest was lodged against the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian forces in Kotkotera Sector along the Line of Control (LoC) that led to martyrdom of a civilian, a statement said.

The Director General (SA & SAARC), Dr Muhammad Faisal summoned the Indian diplomat and condemned the incident of September 4 that resulted in the martyrdom of an innocent civilian Abdur Rauf who was grazing his animals.

"The Indian forces have carried out more than 2,000 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, resulting in the martyrdom of 32 innocent civilians, while injuring 122 others," a statement released from the Foreign Office said.

This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations. The Foreign Office termed the deliberate targeting of civilian population areas "deplorable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws".

The statement from the Foreign Office spokesman said the ceasefire violations by India were a threat to regional peace and security and might lead to a strategic miscalculation.
