Pak summons Indian envoy over truce violations

Islamabad: Pakistan on Tuesday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P.Singh to protest Indian ceasefire violations along the Border (IB), the Foreign Office said.

An infant and an elderly man were killed and seven people were injured in heavy mortar shelling by the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) in villages along the Sialkot IB on Monday, Dawn online reported.

The attack came at night when residents of villages in Bajwat, Chaprar, Harpal, Sucheet­garh, Merajkey and Charwah sectors were asleep, the daily quoted senior officials of the Rangers as saying.

A strong protest was also lodged with the UN Military Observer Group (UNMOGIP) “regarding unprovoked firing by Indians across the IB”, Inter-Services Public Relations said.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria last week alleged that has committed more than 90 ceasefire violations in 2016.

He claimed that Pakistan has “never violated the ceasefire agreement” signed between the two countries in 2003 to maintain peace at the border and the Line of Control.
