ISLAMABAD, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan on Friday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh and lodged formal protest over the recent "unprovoked ceasefire violations" by the Indian forces, leaving two Pakistani civilians dead, the foreign ministry said.
The ministry said in a statement that Director General at the South Asian desk of the Foreign Ministry Mohammad Faisal summoned the Indian diplomat and condemned the firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir on Thursday.
The statement said the Indian forces fired along the LoC in Chirikot Sector, Chaffar Village while a funeral prayer was being offered, resulting in the killings of two civilians and injuries to four others.
Pakistan and India had declared ceasefire along the LoC in 2003. However, both sides routinely accuse each other of violating the ceasefire.
