Pakistan summons Indian envoy after alleged firing by India

Pakistan on Friday summoned the Indian high commissioner and strongly condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian forces, which killed six civilians and injured 26 others, the Foreign Ministry said.

The military man was killed this morning when Pakistani units opened fire on a patrol guarding the LoC, the de facto border in Kashmir, a military spokesman told IANS news agency.

There have since been repeated outbreaks of firing across the frontier, with both sides reporting deaths and injuries including to civilians.

Pakistani troops had earlier violated ceasefire on the worldwide border (IB) in the Jammu district consecutively for four days.

It is pertinent to note that despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations.

"Pakistan's unsolicited comments pertaining to Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir are factually incorrect and misleading".

During the contact, Pakistan Army DGMO raised the issue of deliberate targeting of Pakistani civilians, residing in the vicinity of the working boundary.

At least 26 people were also wounded in the exchange of fire, which targeted Pkaistan's Chappar, Harpal and Charwa sectors, the Pakistani military said in a statement on Friday.

The Army sources said that it was a sniper attack carried out from across the de-facto border as the area was calm till this incident took place.

"DGMO reiterated that the Indian Army is a professional Army and reserves the right to retaliate appropriately to any incident leading to loss of life of our troops".

The Army said that the DGMO level talks were held at the behest of the Pakistani DGMO.

According to the ISPR, the army conveyed its "unflinching resolve to ensure security of its population" to the Indian DGMO, it reported.
