RAWALPINDI (Dunya News) – Four civilians including a child sustained injuries on Tuesday after Indian troops yet again in a barbaric manner violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC).

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) issued a statement and said that Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing of heavy weapons including mortars along the LoC in Lepa valley and deliberately targeted civilian population.

Four innocent civilians which had two women and a child among them got wounded due to infernal act by India. 

A senior diplomat from the High Commission of India has been summoned to the Foreign Office, to register Pakistan’s strong protest at the ceasefire violations by Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC), resulting in serious injuries to the civilians

Condemning the targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, it was underscored that such senseless Indian acts, in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding and complete disregard for international human rights and international norms, further vitiate the tense atmosphere along the LoC and pose a threat to regional peace and stability.

It was also emphasized that by raising tensions along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB), India cannot divert attention from the worsening human rights situation in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K).

Pakistan called upon the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding; investigate this and other incidents of deliberate ceasefire violations and maintain peace along the LoC and the WB.

It was also urged that India should permit the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolutions.

On Feb 1, in an unfortunate event, Indian troops again violated the ceasefire agreement and resorted to the unprovoked firing across the Line of Control (LoC).

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the Indian troops deliberately targeted the civilian population in the Satwal sector. A 45-year-old man, resident of Madarpur village, was critically injured and was immediately rushed to the hospital for medical assistance.
