RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Two civilians embraced martyrdom and three others injured in an unprovoked Indian firing along the Line of Control at Jandrot and Hot spring sector on Monday.

In a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the Indian troops used heavy weapons including mortars.

Pakistan Army effectively responded to the firing, silencing the guns of the enemy.

There are reports that this inflicted damage to the Indian posts and caused casualties.

On the other hand, Indian Deputy High Commissioner J. P Singh was summoned to the foreign office in Islamabad on Monday and a strong protest was lodged with him over recent Indian firing on Line of Control (LoC). 

The foreign office said deliberate targeting of civilians is condemnable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws.

Pakistan urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement; investigate the incidents of ceasefire violations and instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire in letter and spirit for peace on LoC.
