The protest was lodged over violation of ceasefire agreement at the Working Boundary in Chaprar and Harpal sectors and on the LoC in Bhimber sector on 25-26 October, the statement said.

Pakistan said that two civilians were killed and nine others injured in the firing. “It was conveyed to the Indian side that it should investigate the incident and share the findings with Pakistan, instruct its troops to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit, refrain from intentionally targeting the villages and maintain peace on the Working Boundary and the LoC,” FO said.

India had yesterday said Pakistan Army violated the ceasefire by targeting Indian Army positions with mortar and
small arms fire in Noushera sector of Rajouri district, prompting the army to give a “befitting response”. There have been over 40 ceasefire violations from the Pakistani side since the Indian side carried out surgical strikes inside Pakistan occupied Kashmir targeting terror launching pads, post the attack on an army camp in Uri on September 18.

          Just tell them that all your nonsense would not be tolerated and you would e paid back with a hefty interest whenever and wherever you violate the ceasefire. Tell that Indian government is not interested to talk to the perpetual liar and a joker named Abdul basit , sitting in Delhi and w world knows how rampantlyyou lie after LET owned the responsibility of the Uris attacks. China would soon pay for its mistakes of supporting youwhen it faces international ban on its goods for backing terrorists and intimidating the neighbours in South China Sea.
