ISLAMABAD: Pakistan today summoned India’s Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh over the alleged “ceasefire violations” by Indian troops along the Line of Control which resulted in the death of an elderly woman.
Director General (South Asia and SAARC) Dr Mohammad Faisal summoned Singh and “condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations” by the Indian forces in Chirikot sector yesterday, the Foreign Office said.
It said a 75-year-old woman was killed in the firing.
Faisal said that despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations.
“The deliberate targeting of civilians is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws. The ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation,” he added.
