India highlights Pakistan infiltration, firing at DGMOs' meet

India highlights Pakistan infiltration, firing at DGMOs' meet

He also urged the Indian side to permit the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan to play its mandated role, in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions.

There have since been repeated outbreaks of firing across the frontier, with both sides reporting deaths and injuries including to civilians.

Pakistani military accused Indian border forces of killing at least six civilians, including two women during "unprovoked" shelling and firing along the eastern border between the two nuclear-armed countries. Maj Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza, who is the Pakistan DGMO was also told by Lt Bhatt that that cross-border infiltration was also impacting internal security situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Ceasefire violations by Indian forces have been frequent since relations between the neighbouring countries worsened over unrest in Indian-held Kashmir and sentencing of Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav.

Pakistan and Indian DGMOs established contact on special hotline.

This year, there have been 472 ceasefire violations by Pakistan along LoC guarded by the Army.

The latest incident in the disputed Himalayan region comes as Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said in his speech at the U.N. General Assembly that India has committed a number of human rights violations in India's part of Kashmir. It was also said that no targeted firing on civilians were carried out by India.

Pakistan's DGMO conveyed unflinching resolve of Pakistan Army in ensuring safety of its population and "it shall continue to take all measures to deter any such aggression in future". This is way more than the combined ceasefire violations along the IB, where the BSF is deployed, and LoC, totaling 449 in 2016.

"If India does venture across the LoC, or acts upon its doctrine of "limited" war against Pakistan, it will evoke a strong and matching response", he said.
