Pakistan Summons Indian Diplomat Over ‘Ceasefire Violation’ Four Indian paramilitary soldiers lost their lives in firing by Pakistan along the international border

PAKISTAN has summoned India’s acting Deputy High Commissioner alleging ceasefire violation by India, accusing it of unprovoked firing along the Line of Control in the Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir.

This comes hours after four Indian border security personnel lost their lives while three others sustained heavy injuries in firing by Pakistan along the international border.

In a press conference, Kamal Nath Choubey, Additional Director General (ADG) of the Border Security Forces (BSF) said: “ceasefire is always a bilateral decision, we have always maintained the sanctity of the ceasefire, but Pakistan has violated it.”

India’s Border Security Force lost 4 personnel including two soldiers, one Assistant Commandant, and one Sub-Inspector.

Earlier in May, the Director General of Military Operations (DGMOs) of India and Pakistan had spoken to each other on the issue of ceasefire violation and terrorist activities and had agreed on full cooperation to implement the ceasefire understanding of 2003.
