ISLAMABAD - Pakistan yesterday summoned Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale over the unprovoked cross-Line of Control firing by the Indian forces in which two Pakistani soldiers died.

Foreign Office officials said Pakistan strongly condemned the firing across the LoC. Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry handed over the protest note to Bambawale. The Foreign Office, earlier in a statement, termed the unprovoked firing a continuation of a pattern of ceasefire violations committed by the Indian forces. It said that “any such aggression will not go unanswered or unpunished.”
