Srinagar: ioktimes : Pakistan Tuesday summoned India’s acting Deputy high Commissioner and condemned the alleged “unprovoked ceasefire violations” by means of Indian troops across the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir which resulted within the dying of a women today.
Director basic (South Asia and SAARC) Mohammad Faisal, who can be the foreign ministry spokesman, summoned the Indian diplomat and “condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by using the Indian forces alongside the line of control on December 31,” the Foreign office (FO) stated in a announcement.
The firing in the Shahkot Sector along the LoC resulted within the loss of life of the women, identified as Asia Bibi, and injured seven others on Monday, it said.
Faisal mentioned that the Indian forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary are “continuously targeting civilian populated areas with heavy weapons.”
The FO alleged that in 2018, the Indian forces have applied more than 2,350 ceasefire violations alongside the LoC and the Working Boundary, resulting in the dying of 36 civilians, at the same time injuring 142 others.
“This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by way of India is continuing from the year 2017 when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations,” it alleged.
“The deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is certainly deplorable and opposite to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian legal guidelines. The ceasefire violations through India are a chance to regional peace and security and may result in a strategic miscalculation,” the statement stated.
Faisal advised the Indian part to recognize the 2003 Ceasefire association; investigate this and different incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to appreciate the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and hold peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary.
He advised that the Indian side will have to permit UN Military Observer group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the UN safety Council resolutions.
India keeps that UNMOGIP has outlived its utility and is beside the point after the Simla agreement and the ensuing establishments on the LoC.
