Pakistan summons Indian envoy over truce violations

The Foreign Office said, On Tuesday Pakistan summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P.Singh to protest Indian ceasefire violations along the (IB) International Border.

Dawn online reported, An infant and an elderly man were killed and seven people were injured in heavy mortar shelling by the Indian (BSF) Border Security Force in villages along the Sialkot IB on Monday.

Inter-Services Public Relations said, A strong protest was also lodged with the (UNMOGIP) UN Military Observer Group “regarding unprovoked firing by Indians across the IB.”

“India has committed more than 90 ceasefire violations in 2016,” Nafees Zakaria, Foreign Office Spokesperson last week alleged that.

He claimed that Pakistan has “never violated the ceasefire agreement” signed between the 2 countries in 2003 to maintain peace at the border and the Line of Control.
