Indian troops violate ceasefire in Nakial sector


RAWALPINDI: Two Pakistani citizens were martyred in an unabated and unprovoked firing by Indian security forces along the Working Boundary (WB) in Nakial sector, according to Inter-Services Public Relations.


A statement issued by the ISPR on Thursday said Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing in Nakial sector again, as a result teenage girl Laiba and an elderly man Munshi Ahmed were martyred.

The Pakistani forces’ befitting response silenced the guns of Indian troops.

It may be noted here that India has been violating ceasefire along LoC and Working Boundary for a long time. Pakistan has recorded its protect with Indian officials and even in the United Nations.

Foreign Office Spokesman Qazi Khaliullah earlier in the day said Pakistan expected India to respect its commitment on ceasefire by desisting from violating the Line of Control (LoC).

He was asked why New Delhi had resorted to cross border violations soon after a commitment by its minister that it would not be the first to fire the bullet indicating rifts between Indian political and military leadership.

“Yes, certainly there is a disconnect what we are told than the ground realities. We expect India to honour the commitments given to us to respect the ceasefire,” the spokesman said in his reply.
