The acting director general of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summoned acting Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh on Sunday to condemn the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian army on the Line of Control (LoC) causing the death of Pakistani civilians.
He condemned Indian aggression in Kotli and Nikial Sub Sector back on September 22 wherein a 22-year-old woman, Tashiba, was martyred and two others were seriously injured.
Despite calls for restraint India continues to break the ceasefire with 873 violations by their army which has resulted in the martyrdom of 39 civilians as well as injuries to 144 in this year alone along the LoC.
He implored the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement as well as calling for a probe into the incidents.
He said that the deliberate targeting of civilians is deplorable and contrary to international human rights and humanitarian laws.
He urged the Indian side to permit the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan to play its role mandated as per the UN security council resolutions.
