India Lodges Strong Protest With Pakistan Over Repeated Ceasefire Violations :
According to the information provided by the Govt. sources to the NDTV, India registered its strong protest with Pakistan High commissioner Abdul Basit after the killing of a civilian near the International Border in Jammu, after the visit of Prime Minister Modi on Friday.
A woman was killed and six, including two soldiers were also injured in the heavy firing from across the border in Akhnoor sector, in the seventh ceasefire violation this month. Again there has been more firing this morning, again on the international Border in Jammu district. And also three villagers have been injured in the firing at the RS pura sector.
Not only that, Pakistan also summoned the Indian envoy after saying it shot down an Indian ?spy drone? on Wednesday, a claim that has been denied y New Delhi. Sources of Indian govt called it a strange coincidence that Pakistan claimed it shot down an Indian drone soon after the violation on Wednesday.
As per the information, the Pakistan army alleges that the drone was being used for aerial photography near the Line of Control and was shot down in the Bhimber area of POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir) for the violation of Pakistan?s territorial Integrity.
The Indian military has strongly denied the allegation. The defence ministry said in a statement that, some reports of a drone crash in POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir) are being referred to. No drone or UAV crash of Indian Army has taken place.
The border trouble comes days after PM Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif held talks on the sidelines of regional summit in Ufa in Russia. . As part of what was seen as breakthrough announcements after the talks, the two countries have decided to arrange meetings of senior military officials to reduce the tension along the border.
