India summons Pak deputy high commissioner over civilians' killing

India today summoned the Pakistan Deputy High Commissioner in New Delhi and lodged a strong protest against the killing of five civilians in unprovoked firing by Pakistani forces. 

External Affairs Ministry in a release said, the deliberate targeting of innocent civilians, who are located two kilometres away from the forward line of defences, by Pakistan forces is highly deplorable and is condemned in the strongest terms. 

Pakistan Deputy High Commissioner Syed Haider Shah was also told that such heinous acts are against established humanitarian norms and professional military conduct. 

India has called upon Pakistan authorities to investigate into such heinous acts and instruct its forces to desist from such acts immediately. 

The Ministry said, India shared its strong concerns at continued unprovoked firing and ceasefire violations across Line of Control and International Border. 

More than 560 such violations have been carried out by Pakistan forces at the Line of Control so far in 2018 in which 23 Indian civilians have been killed and 70 others have been injured.

The Pakistan side was also asked to end the support being given to cross-border infiltration of terrorists, including through covering fire.
