The FO alleged that the Indian forces along the LoC and Working Boundary (WB) have continuously been targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons which still continues.

Chaudhry said that by raising tensions along the LoC and the WB, India cannot divert attention from Kashmir, according to FO.

He also called upon the Indian side to respect the ceasefire understanding; investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations and maintain peace on the LoC and the WB.
