ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Director General (SA & SAARC) summoned the Indian deputy high commissioner and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces in Baroh and Tandar Sectors on July 18, resulting in the martyrdom of two civilians, including one woman, in Barho Sector and a man in Tandar Sector, and injuries to six others.
