ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria on Wednesday said that India for the second time today violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control, which left four including two children injured.
Zakaria on Twitter tweeted that Indian security forces violated ceasefire at Karela sector and Pakistan Army is befittingly responding to the provocation.
The spokesman said that a three-year old girl and an 11-year-old boy were shifted to a hospital after getting injured. Two women have also been injured and received treatment from Headquarters Hospital Nakial, he said.
The Line of Control violations have started since Oct 19, midnight at the Karela sector, Nafees Zakaria said. He added that today’s violation has been continuing since 4PM.
The violation comes a day after Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar said that it will not stop people-to-people contact with Pakistan amid rising tensions between the South Asian neighbours.
India has also been violating the ceasefire at the Line of Control (LoC) and in September two Pakistani soldiers were martyred in a violation. India claimed it had carried out ‘surgical strikes’ but this claim was dismissed by Pakistan. The government of Narendra Modi has also been criticised by opposition parties in India for failing to provide any evidence of the surgical strikes claim.
