Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday summoned India's deputy high commissioner in Islamabad and "condemned the unprovoked" ceasefire violation by India along the Line of Control that killed two civilians and injured five others.
Foreign Office said in a statement that India resorted to firing in Battal, Jandrot and Kotli sectors.
"The Director General (South Asia & SAARC), Dr. Mohammad Faisal, summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner, J P Singh and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces on June 1," it said.
One person was killed and four others injured in Battal sector, while one person was killed and another injured in Kotli sector.
