ISLAMABAD: Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh was summoned to foreign office in Islamabad on Wednesday and strong protest was lodged with him over unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces in Kotkotera Sector along the Line of Control (LoC) on September 4, resulting in the killing of one innocent civilian identified as Abdur Rauf.
“The Indian Forces have carried out more than 2000 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, resulting in the killings of 32 innocent civilians, while injuring 122 others. This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations,” the Foreign Office stated in a press release on Wednesday.
“The deliberate targeting of civilian population areas 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.”—NNI
