Pakistan summons diplomat as Indian ceasefire violation claims another life at LoC

The line of Control (LoC) is a geographical line lying between India and Pakistan's controlled parts of the former (under the British) Jammu and Kashmir and controlled by the army.

Foreign Office said that Director General (South Asia & SAARC) Mohammad Faisal summoned Singh and condemned the "unprovoked ceasefire violations" by the Indian forces along the LoC on 1 March in Bhimber/Samahini Sectors. Two Pakistani soldiers were killed in retaliatory fire by Indian troops, an Army official said.

Earlier in Uri, India and Pakistan used heavy artillery against each other.

Frequent ceasefire violations by Indian forces are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation.
