Islamabad - Pakistan Army on Friday registered a complaint with the UN Military Observers Group against violation of ceasefire by Indian troops along the Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary.
According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the UN Military Observers have been asked to take due course of action against India for unprovocative firing.
The ISPR statement said, "In its case Pakistan Army highlighted the Indians' use of heavy mortars and machine guns on civil population, living along Working Boundary and Line of Control, which has resulted in martyrdom of four civilians and injuries to five others during the past two days.
"UNMOGIP was asked to use its good offices to investigate Indian ceasefire violations ," the statement said.
As a result of the Indian unprovoked firing, the ISPR statement said that 3 civilian Ghulam Mustafa, Rahat and Boota from Malana and Salehpur villages embraced shahadat on Working Boundary near Sialkot, while five civilians were injured. One 18 years old Zareena Bibi embraced shahadat at LoC in Neza pir sector near Rawlakot.
Pakistan has been raising its concerns at various forums about the unprovocative firing by the Indian security forces, and blamed New Delhi for resorting to unprovoked firing on India-Pakistan border ostensibly to sidetrack Pakistan's efforts in fighting terrorism on its western border with Afghanistan.
Leading Pakistani defence analysts believed that this pattern of firing suggests that New Delhi as part of its design resorts to such tactics whenever Pakistani security forces launched any major operation against the terrorists and their hideouts on its western border.
The latest incidents of unprovocative firing by the Indian security forces, they believed, was the latest attempt to sidetrack the efforts of Pakistani security forces which are near to accomplish the major military operation Zarb-e- Azb against the terrorists in areas near the Afghan border.
Consequently, Pakistan Army has lodged a complaint with the UN military observers ' mission to investigate the recurring violation of ceasefire through unprovoked firing by the Indian security forces.
