Pakistan on Sunday (20 October) summoned the Indian Charge D' Affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia and rejected Indian Army's claim about "launchpads" being targeted by India along the Line of Control (LoC).

Pakistan's Director General (SA and SAARC), Mohammad Faisal, also condemned the "unprovoked ceasefire violations" by the Indian forces along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Jura, Shahkot, and Nausehri sectors on 19 and 20 October.

Faisal told the Indian envoy that due to "indiscriminate and unprovoked firing" by Indian forces, including the use of heavy artillery, five civilians had died, while six others, including women and children, had sustained serious injuries.

Pakistan has alleged that the Indian forces along the LoC and Working Boundary have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy calibre mortars and automatic weapons.

Faisal has urged India to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement, saying the Indian side should permit the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the United Nations Security Council Resolutions.
