Pakistan on Friday summoned Indian High Commissioner TCA Raghavan and lodged a strong protest against ceasefire violations. Pakistan claimed that at least six civilians were killed by firing by Indian troops.

Pakistan Foreign Secretary summoned Raghavan to convey that ceasefire violations by the Indian side were not acceptable, sources told to Indian Express.

The High Commissioner was accompanied by his deputy J P Singh.

Pakistan military claimed at least six civilians were killed and 46 others, including 22 women, were injured in alleged firing from the Indian side in the Charwa Sector near the Sialkot Working Boundary. Three civilians were also killed in India by Pakistani troops on Friday.

Locals say that Pakistani troops used small arms and mortar shells to target several areas along the LoC in the RS Pura and Arnia sectors in Jammu.

This comes less than a week after Pakistan called off the first-ever NSA-level talks between the two countries amid acrimony.
