India issues demarche to Pak over ceasefire violations

India has issued a demarche to Pakistan on continued violation of ceasefire along the LoC.

The Ministry of External Affairs called in a senior official of the Pakistan High Commission yesterday and made a demarche on the continued violation of ceasefire along the Line of Control, the ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said today. This is the third such demarche this month.

"We conveyed that despite calls for restraint, Pakistan forces have committed twelve ceasefire violations between 9 and 15 November, 2016 during which Pakistan Army deliberately resorted to calibre escalation by employing artillery and 120 millimetre heavy mortars against Indian posts. These violent acts constitute a clear violation of the Ceasefire Agreement of 2003," Sawrup said. A counsellor rank officer from the Pakistan High Commission was called in.
