Sartaj Aziz, adviser to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that, “During the period of Oct 1-10, 2014, 20 ceasefire violations along the LoC were reported, resulting in 12 civilian deaths, 52 injured civilians and nine injured military personnel on the Pakistani side”.
The advisor added that, “the Government of Pakistan sincerely hopes that better sense would prevail on the Indian side to prevent the situation from spiraling out of control”.
India said that it was a “matter of deep regret” that Pakistan violated the ceasefire, in which eight people were killed and many others were injured. India also made it clear that its armed forces are “fully ready” to respond to “provocation”.
India has however always maintained that UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), has “outlived its relevance” and has “no role to play whatsoever” on the issue.
