ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Foreign Office summoned India’s Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia on Monday to lodge a protest against ceasefire violation over the Line of Control (LoC).
Foreign Office spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal handed over a dossier to Ahluwalia and denounced the constant violations of the ceasefire agreement by India.
At least two people were killed when Indian troops violated ceasefire by resorting to shelling along the restive Line of Control (LoC) in Hot Spring Sector of Azad Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday.
