Pakistan Army asks UN observers to investigate border fire by India

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Army on Friday asked the UN military observers to investigate firing and shelling by Indian troops on its side of Kashmir which killed four people this week.

The Pakistan Army in a statement said that it had informed the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) about ceasefire violations and asked them to investigate.

It said it had “highlighted the Indians’ use of heavy mortars and machine guns on (the) civil population” living along the de facto border of the disputed Himalayan state of Kashmir.

It said that four civilians were killed and five others were wounded during the past two days as a direct result of Indian firing and shelling.

The UNMOGIP was set up to monitor ceasefire violations by India and Pakistan but the watchdog does not conduct criminal investigations.
