ISLAMABAD: A man was martyred and four others, including three women, were injured as Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing targeting civilians at the Line of Control (LoC) on Wednesday.

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement said that due to Indian firing targeting civilians at the LoC, a civilian embraced martyrdom while four others, including three women, were injured. The Pakistan Army responded effectively, according to the statement, and inflicted casualties and heavy losses on the Indian posts from where the firing originated. The deceased was identified as 22-year-old Raziq, a resident of Balakot. The injured included Irum Kauser and Ghulam Fatima of Balakot, Kalsoom Begum of Panjni village and Ahsan Kareem of Datot village.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Office summoned Indian deputy high commissioner to lodge protest over the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces in Kotli/Nikial Sector on Wednesday.

“Despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations. In 2017 to date, Indian forces have carried out more than 873 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, resulting in martyrdom of 40 innocent civilians and injuries to 148, as compared to 382 ceasefire violations in 2016,” a statement by the Foreign Office said. “The deliberate targeting of civilians is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws”.
