New Delhi has highlighted its concerns over unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistan forces. The violations include those in support of cross-border terrorist infiltration and targeting of Indian civilians and border posts by Islamabad.
An official spokesperson said, this year, Pakistan has resorted to as many as 2,050 unprovoked ceasefire violations resulting in the death of 21 Indians. The spokesperson said, Indian forces exercise maximum restraint and respond to unprovoked violations and attempts at cross-border terrorist infiltration. He said India has repeatedly called upon Pakistan to ask its forces to adhere to 2003 ceasefire understanding and maintain peace and tranquillity along the LoC and International Border.
