Furthermore, Pakistan Foreign Office on Sunday said it has summoned Indian Chargé d’affaires Gaurav Aluwalia over unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces.

In a statement issued by the Foreign Office, Dr. Mohammad Faisal, Director General South Asia, and SAARC condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations in Jura, Shahkot and Nausehri sectors on 19th and 20th October 2019.

“Due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by Indian occupation forces, including use of heavy artillery, five innocent civilians, Muhammad Rafaqat s/o Haji Azam aged 28 years, Haji Azam aged 60 years, Haji Sarfaraz s/o Ghulam Rabbani aged 47 years, residents of Village Nausadda and two non-resident civilian labourers Mr. Liaqat and Mr. Faisal, embraced shahadat, while six others, including women and children, sustained serious injuries,” the Foreign Office said.

“Pakistan categorically rejects Indian media reports about so – called “launchpads” being targeted by India along the LoC. Earlier, highlighting the Indian threat to regional peace and security, Pakistan has called upon the P5 to ask India to provide information about the so – called alleged “launchpads” and stated its willingness to arrange a visit of the P5 diplomats to those locations to expose Indian falsehood. Heinous Indian targeting of civilians is a typical attempt by India to divert international attention from the humanitarian nightmare in IOJ&K,” statement further added.
