ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Foreign Office (FO) has summoned a senior diplomat from the Indian High Commission (HC) and lodged a strong protest over ceasefire violations on the line of control (LoC). An Indian HC has been summoned to the FO, to register Pakistan’s strong protest at the ceasefire violations by Indian occupation forces along the LoC, which resulted in serious injuries to an innocent civilian man. The FO spokesperson said that due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian forces in Satwal Sector of LoC, 45 year old Muhammad Safeer resident of village Madarpur, sustained serious injuries. Condemning the targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, it was underscored that such senseless Indian acts are clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding and complete disregard for international human rights and international norms. He also said India cannot divert world attention from the worsening human rights situation in the Indian-held Jammu Kashmir (IHK). Pakistan called upon the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding; investigate the current and previous incidents of deliberate ceasefire violations and maintain peace along the LoC and the Working Boundary. It was also urged that India should permit the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan to play its mandated role as per the UNSC Resolutions. A day earlier, Indian troops resorted to unprovoked fire in Satwal sector along the line of Control (LoC) on Saturday, deliberately targeting civilian population. According to a press release issued by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), a 45-year-old resident of village Madarpur sustained serious injuries due to indiscriminate firing.
