RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Indian Army resorted to unprovoked intense fire across Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary in Narowal’s Herpal, Charwah, Bajwat and Chaprar Sectors on Saturday.

The Indian forces along the Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary are resorting to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing with heavy mortars and automatic weapons on the civilian populated villages.
The skirmishes between Pakistan and India have begun to become a routine. Guns have been rather silent at the borders since 2003 ceasefire on LoC until now that the attacks have gained pace, building tension between both the neighbors.
On Friday, Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh was again summoned to Foreign Office to protest lodged with him over continued ceasefire violations by Indian forces along Working Boundary at Sialkot-Harpal sector.
One innocent civilian was martyred and nine others, including women and elderly people, were injured in the Indian forces’ firing.
The Indian Deputy High Commissioner was told that deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws.
Director-General South Asia Dr. Muhammad Faisal said that ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation.
He urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement; investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary.
