Acting president AJK, Shah Ghulam Qadir, expressed serious concern over unabated ceasefire violations by Indian troops across the LoC and called upon the United Nations and worldwide human rights organisations to take notice of the situation.
"Indian troops initiated unprovoked firing in Bhimber sector".
"Despite calls for restraint, India continues to indulge in ceasefire violations", it lamented.
The Acting Director-General, South Asia told the Indian envoy that deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, worldwide human rights and humanitarian laws.
The Indian Army is also retaliating effectively and strongly.
In the recent past, Pakistan has accused India of carrying out more than 400 ceasefire violations in 2018, resulting in the death of 18 civilians.
He urged the Indian side to allow the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.
A defence spokesperson claimed that the Pakistan Army violated the ceasefire agreement around 10:30 hours in Nowshera, Kalal and Sunderbani sectors the district. "Shells landed near Nowshera town".
AJK officials also said that Indian troops were targeting educational institutions as elementary board exams are taking place. At least 21 people including 12 army and BSF men and nine civilians have been killed and over 75 others injured in Pakistani troops' firing and mortar shelling along the LoC and IB in J&K in 58 days.
