Islamabad, May 18 (IBNS):  Pakistan on Friday summoned Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria over the issue of 'unprovoked ceasefire violations' by Indian armed forces along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary.

Pakistan's foreign ministry said Acting Foreign Secretary, summoned the Indian High Commissioner and 'condemned' the incident.

"The Acting Foreign Secretary, summoned the Indian High Commissioner today and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary on 18th May 2018 (which still continues), in Pukhlian, Cahprar, Harpal, Charwah and Shakargarh Sectors, resulting in the shahadat of 4 innocent members of the family of Mr. Noor Hussain (including his wife, two (2) daughters and a son) in Village Khanoor, and injuries to 10 others," Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

"The Indian forces along the Line of Control and the Working boundary are continuously targeting civilian populated areas with heavy weapons. In 2018, the Indian forces have carried out more than 1050 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, resulting in the shahadat of 28 innocent civilians, while injuring 117 others. This unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017, when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations," claimed the foreign office.

"The Acting Foreign Secretary urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement; investigate this 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," read the statement.

The Foreign Ministry said he urged that the Indian side should permit UNMOGIP to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.
