Pak protests killing of its national during Indian attack

pak-protests-killingPakistan on Thursday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh to lodge a protest over the killing of a civilian in an incident of firing across the Line of Control (LoC) a day earlier.

Indian forces violated the ceasefire along the LoC twice on Wednesday, killing one man and injuring five people, according to the Foreign Office (FO).

FO Spokesman Nafees Zakaria, during a weekly press briefing on Thursday, claimed that India had violated the ceasefire agreement more than 90 times in 2016 alone.

A senior FO official handed over a demarche to the Indian deputy high commissioner containing details regarding losses due to Indian firing and shelling in the Karela sector on Wednesday, sources told DawnNews.

Islamabad in its demarche asked New Delhi to avoid targeting civilians residing across the LoC.

Pakistan also handed over a demarche to representatives of the United Nations Military Observers group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) protesting against the Indian Army’s targeting of Pakistani civilians across the LoC.

General Headquarters lodged a protest with UNMOGIP representatives against the use of heavy mortal shells by the Indian Army that resulted in the death of a civilian at the LoC, FO Spokesman Nafees Zakaria said.
