Pakistan summons Indian envoy to protest killing of civilian in LoC ceasefire violation

October 08, 2019

The Foreign Office (FO) on Tuesday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia to record a strong protest against the “unprovoked ceasefire violations” by Indian forces along the Line of Control (LoC) on October 6 and 7.

An elderly woman had died and three other civilians had sustained injuries in the firing in Chirikot sector along the de facto border.

“FO Director General (SA & SAARC) Dr Mohammad Faisal summoned the Indian deputy high commissioner again today and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the LoC,” the FO spokesperson said in a press release.

According to the statement, Dr Faisal urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement; investigate these and other incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary.

India should permit the United Nations Military Observers Group for India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions, he added.

According to the press release, due to “indiscriminate and unprovoked firing” by Indian army in Chirikot sector of the LoC, an elderly lady named Nazira Begum, 69, a resident of village Kakuta died, while three other civilians, Manzoor, 43, Jamil, 40, and Mushtaq, 46 — all residents of village Kakuta — sustained serious injuries.

The FO added that the Indian occupation forces along the LoC and Working Boundary have continuously been targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars, and automatic weapons, which still continues.

“This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations.

“The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws.”

The FO warned that the ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright violation? My website
    has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it
    seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but
    I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
