ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Monday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh to lodge a protest over the death of an elderly woman due to firing across the Line of Control (LoC) on March 17.
A 60-year-old female resident of village Thandi Kassi died when Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing in Kotli district along the LoC.
The protest was also lodged over an incident of cross-border firing on Sunday when two children, aged nine- and 14-years-old, were injured.
The Indian deputy high commissioner was summoned by the FO’s director general (South Asia and Saarc) and handed a démarche.
The Foreign Office urged India to cease cross-border violations.
