Banglahant Desk: India gave a strong message to Pakistan for violating the ceasefire in the border area. Aftab Hassan Khan, acting chief of Pakistan's high commissioner, was strongly condemned by the Indian foreign ministry for the incident, saying it was the same thing to support the entry of terrorists into the border area.
On behalf of India, it was said, “Pakistan has chosen this festival of lights to kill innocent citizens of India. It is a highly reprehensible incident.” Pakistani troops have been using heavy caliber weapons, including artillery and mortars, to repeatedly attack the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.
It is further said that such repeated attacks on Indian troops and civilians in the border areas are tantamount to supporting terrorist infiltration from Pakistan. As a result, Pakistan has repeatedly violated the ceasefire as well as bilateral agreements. The bilateral agreement stated that no part of Pakistan could be used for terrorist attacks against India.
On the eve of Diwali, Pakistani troops attacked several sectors of the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistani troops opened fire on Indian troops on Friday in violation of a ceasefire in the border area. Five security personnel and four civilians were killed and 19 others were injured in the incident. In retaliation, 11 Pakistani soldiers were killed and 18 wounded.
