Pakistan summoned Indian High Commissioner TCA Raghavan on Friday and lodged a strong protest over alleged ceasefire violations and said that six civilians had been killed by the Indian troops in the firing.
Raghavan was summoned by Pakistan Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry to communicate that Friday’s ceasefire violations by the Indian side were not acceptable, according to sources.
“While condemning the Indian practice of targeting civilians on purpose, Pakistan expressed its deep concern at the continued hostility at the LoC and the Working Boundary,” the Foreign Office (FO) said in a statement.
Pakistan alleged that six of their civilians were killed and 47 others, including 22 women, were injured due to firing by Indian troops across Harpal and Chaprar sectors near Sialkot.
This comes less than a week after Pakistan called off the National Security Advisor (NSA) level talks between the two countries. (ANI)
