PAKISTAN has blasted India for “deliberately targeting citizens” as tensions along the contested border known as the Line of Control (LoC) surged and ceasefire violations were condemned, it has emerged.
The Pakistani Foreign Ministry blamed the Indian Deputy High Commissioner Shri J.P. Singh for the “unprovoked violations” in a statement. It read: “The Director General, Dr Mohammad Faisal, summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner Mr J.P. Singh today and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control on 27 February 2018 in the Nikial Sector resulting in the Shahadat (martyrdom) of a 13-year-old boy.”
The ministry claimed that India was behind 400 violations this year alone along the LoC and Working Boundary that separates the two South Asian nations. It added that 18 citizens have been killed and 68 have been injured due to attacks across the border.
