Pakistan lodges strong protest with India over ceasefire violations
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has lodged a protest with India over the unprovoked ceasefire violations by its occupation forces in Chirikot sector on Tuesday, resulting in the martyrdom of 75 years old lady Mehmooda Begum.

Foreign Office on Wednesday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh and condemned the incident.

He was told that despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations.

The Indian diplomat was informed that deliberate targeting of civilians is deplorable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws.

He was told that the ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation.

J. P. Singh was asked that India should respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement, investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary.

He was urged that the Indian side should permit United Nations Observer Group for India and Pakistan to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.
